Join Wiki Bidois, a local retired teacher and weaver for this Tāniko weaving workshop. She will teach you the process, purposes and patterns of this demanding technique and weave a tīpare (headband) or other intricate item.

This is a weekend workshop spanning two days: Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 June, from 1:30pm to 3:30pm each day. The workshop will accommodate a maximum of 8 people over the age of 15 – get in fast!

Wiki Bidois has been a local school and Te Reo teacher for many years. She was instrumental in starting the Ra Whakangahau kapa haka event at Te Puna over two decades ago. She was also one of the women of Matua Branch of the Maori women’s Welfare League who in 1993 were instrumental in weaving the tukutuku panels that still hang in the stairwell of the Tauranga library today. Each panel has a name and story, which has been documented in a booklet called the Tukutuku Collection.

The Artery, in the Incubator at The Historic Village, 17th Avenue, Tauranga South. $50 for two-day workshop.
