WEAVE A KETE
Try your hand at weaving a kete or small basket with harakeke (flax). Consult books or take a local course, or for the digital-focused, watch an online video on weaving. Rita and Geoffrey Baker from Flaxworx (flaxworx.co.nz) have produced a number of videos on how to prepare harakeke as well as how to weave a kete (look on
YouTube) following traditional Ma¯ ori methods. Follow these great instructions for making beautiful gifts for your family and friends.
