Every Thursday, we welcome you to join Whaea Karen in an informal workshop to learn about working with flax.

This group aims to create a social environment where you can share tips and techniques or start a project in a safe and inviting space. This social group is open to any all levels and abilities.

For those who are starting their journey with raranga/weaving. Over eight weeks, Whaea Karen will take you through the basics.

- Introduction to different types of harakeke and their uses.
- Overview of the tikanga (protocol) and methods of harvesting
- Learn some basic techniques
- Construct and complete a small basket

This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners with no previous weaving experience or those that are looking for a regular meeting place to socialise and work with others in a collective.
