Jane Mander Retirement Village Matariki  - Flax Weaving

At the time of Maori “New Year” – Matariki – our thoughts and activities turned to weaving with harakeke or flax.
Residents enjoyed several afternoons of working with this lovely material to create flowers, kete and other decorative and useful items. The results were used and displayed around the village while the Matariki celebrations continued.
