Learn Raranga -  Maori Weaving

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Thu 31 Jan ’13, 10:00am – 1:00pm


Cross Street Studios, 4 Cross Street, Auckland


All Ages

My name is Jess Paraone, and I will be facilitating your introduction to the Pa Harakeke and Maori weaving techniques.

I am seeking expressions of interest for weaving classes. I envisage a small group of 6 people per class. Each class will be 3.5 hours a week, over a ten week period. Costs will be $40 per week.
Further information will be available upon enrolment and commencement of the class.

My training in the traditions of Maori raranga has always been the doorway through which I have been able to investigate and explore Te Ao Maori, whanau and the values that underpin the Maori world view. My first encounter with weaving was at the side of kuia of Ngati Awa in 1999. That first experience has provided a firm foundation for all following learning. Having later completed formal training at Unitec, Auckland, I continue to weave together ideas and learning with other weavers throughout the motu. I have been working with harakeke (flax) and teaching weaving for a number of years, my work is exhibited locally and internationally.

Examples of my work can be viewed on:

I look forward to meeting with you all and sharing some of the knowledge and wisdom encapsulated within Maori weaving.
