About The Event

Ever wondered how a traditional hīnaki (eel trap) is contructed? Curious about the weaving of kupenga (nets)? This is a unique opportunity to get up close with local artists Dean Flavell and Aroha Kapi who will be demonstrating the contruction of traditional and functional taonga (treasures). This demonstration is part of the Waitī Waitā Wairākei Matariki celebration day.
