Tutor: Lee Olsen: Ngāti Kahungunu, Tūhoe
Lee Olsen lives in Hawke’s Bay and have been weaving with harakeke for over 15 years. It was seeing the beautiful kete that the Nannies treasured that first inspired her to weave. Kete are still her favourite, and there are so many different variations. You can use different whakairo (patterns), different widths of whenu, different colours, different adornments and different fibres. So much room for creativity!
Creative Arts Napier reserves the right to cancel this workshop a week prior to the start date in the rare event of insufficient bookings.
