Beginners Flax Weaving

Step by Step with Andrea

In this interactive workshop we will be learning:

– how to harvest harakeke and when

– how to prepare it

– waiata/karakia

– learning together

– exploring the world of weaving

– having fun with flax

– connecting to self and others/nature

– learning in a relaxed atmosphere

Weaving is very therapeutic and diverse. We will be making some easy windmill knots that create a fish at first and then we will make a star, inspired by the book fun with flax. Depending on time and the group we will be making a bracelet also.

Booking is essential as we have limited numbers for this workshop to assure personal learning is nurtured

Contact Andrea re future workshops.  

From spring usually when the flax doesn’t hold so much water.
