Te Manawa o te Whaariki: To honour Te Manawa o te Whaariki, we honour the weavers
6 July - 1 September 2019
Te Manawa o te Whaariki is the biennial membership exhibition of Te Roopu Raranga Whatu o Aotearoa (the National Weavers Collective), hosted in partnership with the Waikato weavers' roopu, Ngaa Hua o te Rito.
Established in 1983 Te Roopu Raranga Whatu o Aotearoa sought to revive the traditional arts of weaving. Today, the selected taonga (treasures) of this exhibition evidence their mission, “to nurture, develop and preserve the techniques and tikanga of raranga, whatu and taaniko in traditional and modern contexts”.
Education programmes are available for this exhibition.
