String- and rope-making with tī kōuka/cabbage tree leaves | Friday, 25. September 2020

This class with Diana Duncan is held in our workshop at the Art Centre, upstairs in the Boys High Building at 28 Worcester Blvd.



Learn how to use tī kōuka / cabbage tree leaves to make a strong and beautiful twine. Rekindle’s most popular workshop, this technique for making string and rope is simple and can be used with many different materials.



Tī kōuka cabbage tree leaves are such an abundant and multi-purpose material that we can find all around us. If you have access to fallen/brown cabbage tree leaves, please feel free to bring a big bunch along with you, which have been soaked overnight or longer.



There are 12 places available in this workshop.



Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.



Bookings are essential. Please book one spot per person attending (including children).



Bookings are non-refundable and non-transferable. We do, however, understand that things come up and try and accommodate people to the best of our ability. This can include moving people to another class or a refund - but please be aware that this is reliant on us filling the original spot.



This is because all of our pricing, and our efforts to keep costs as low as possible while still paying the tutors a fee commensurate with their experience and allowing them to cover the costs of living, is based on running these classes with a certain number of participants.



We are grateful to be able to offer this workshop in a partially subsidised manner because of support from Creative New Zealand, and from Te Matatiki Toi Ora the Arts Centre.
