Te Ao Māori at Richmond Library

Thursday 7 February 2019

Throughout February Richmond Library is putting on a series of events celebrating the diversity of the Māori world.

Among these are talks by some of our local practitioners of the Māori arts.

Keni-Duke Hetet of Waka Group Architecture will be talking about cultural architecture and Waka Group’s work on the new Te Āwhina marae facilities.

Pounamu carver Timoti Moran will be talking about his work carving greenstone and the wairua in every piece.

Nelson Provincial Museum’s Hamuera Robb, who is a weaver when not at work, will be talking about his work as kaitiaki of the Taonga Māori collection at the museum.

There will also be a flax flower weaving workshop run by three local weavers.
