Weaving a Wonderful Whariki!
On the weekend of 17-18 May 2014 a group of weavers gathered to create a very special whariki (woven mat) together. My friend Liz Byrne was the one who got us started on this project, as she had a vision to create a beautiful whariki to be given as a gift of thanks. My part of the project was to help plan the making of the whariki, and then to lead the group through the task of creating it together. Below you can see the progress of the whariki, from start to finish. What a great result!
