Flax Weaving with Andrea

Andrea’s flaxweaving workshop

2020 has been hectic and full of unplanned events. Why not plan the new year 2021 by learning this very relaxing craft.

I found weaving very therapeutic, when my children were young and I needed some time out for me. It’s a very practical skill to have and very sociable, as I learned at a local marae in Hokianga in Whirinaki.

In this small wananga we will make a kete for your vegetable ( onions, potatoes..). If you want to make them huge afterwards, you could make them into washing baskets, or toy baskets for your children. We will work outside under a big tree on a mat , or inside my barn if it rains.

Come with an open mind and a big smile. The only tools you’ll need are your hands and kind thoughts about yourself. No weaving experience needed but great if you already worked with it.

Please let me know if you have special dietary needs, I will make us a snack with Hone’s Rongoa and Kombucha.

Booking is essential as we have limited numbers for this workshop.
