Weaving Workshop: Create a Maori Cloak

Presented by Cottonwood Center for the Arts at Cottonwood Center for the Arts

Welcome to Aho Amerika! Aho: cord, string, weft, cross threads, line of descent; that which connects, and Amerika: America!

Weaving kakahu (garments) helps us stay grounded in our cultural values and also helps us to connect to others through sharing this knowledge.  We combine our traditional finger twining weaving techniques with modern materials to help you create a contemporary Maori feather cloak sample. If you have an allergy to feathers, we will provide an alternative embellishment for you.
