Focus on flax and weaving
Important questions explored:
Why was/ is flax important to Maori culture?
What things can be made out of it?
How is it collected harvested- what are the rules/ guidelines for this?
Are puipui made out of flax? ( Jhiaani)
Today the seniors taught us a 3 plait and a 4 plait putiputi flower using paper. Our next step is to harvest or collect flax correctly using a karakia and cutting on the outside of the plant to weave with the real material.
