In celebration of Matariki, join us for a free flow day of traditional weaving demonstrations including korowai, piupiu and tāniko and hands on contemporary Māori weaving practices, with lots of korero, kai and aroha wrapped in between.
The day will be jointly led by Waipuia Teddy of Ngāti Maniapoto, she learnt under the guiding hands of her grand-Aunt Diggeress Te kanawa and Dame Rangimārie Hetet. Atakura and Terewai will be travelling with her from Te Kuiti. The group will demonstrate traditional weaving skills from extracting fibre from flax to korowai creation.
On the contemporary side of the spectrum is Avondale-based, Evelyn White, Amber Wikitera from Te Aopouri and Roze Hendrix from Ngāti Hine with a hands-on workshop, guiding you through the use of traditional methods and modern materials for creating your own work.
Free | All welcome | No experience necessary.
Proudly supported by the Whau Local Board in celebration of Matariki
A word from All Goods
10th June 2020
All Goods is back open to our Studio artists and buzzing with creative projects underway and ideas bouncing about. We’re delighted to welcome our new artists in residence for the next 3 months, Louise Stevenson and Tuafale Tanoa’i.
We were lucky to have been in the planning stages of a series of workshops and events before we went into lockdown. They will be open to the public soon. We’re also working on the annual Whau Arts Festival! Keep an eye out here for updates.
If you are looking for a creative community space to work from, All Goods has a variety of studio spaces available to support local artists and makers. Our 2 single studio spaces can be used individually or collectively and we also have an open shared studio space that is used collectively and can be booked for meetings and events. As well as our inside spaces, we have a great sheltered outdoor space which can get as messy as you need.
