Weaving projects of three different levels of technical skill will be taught:
Beginners: Create one or two small pieces - the small two-corner "magic kete" and/or the small four-corner "rourou" basket.
Intermediate: Create an intermediate level handbag-style kete - with a "folded" base, square corners, and a two-ply flax/harakeke fibre handle.
Experienced: Create an advanced skill level "kete whakairo"/patterned basket, with a "tapiki" weave base. Add a two, three or four ply fibre handle.
Decorate your kete with paua pieces, feathers, beads, and any other items you may wish to bring and use.
