Ann-Margaret Strickland was the tutor of a fantastic workshop where we had lots of fun and learned:

  • karakia (prayer of acknowledgement and thanks to mother nature for supplying us with flax)
  • harvesting of harakeke (flax)
  • nuturing and maintenance of harakeke
  • weave basic food basket (kono)
