Kite Making Workshop – Manu Tukutuku – Just Imagine

Join Harko Brown again this year at Just Imagine as he guides you through the enlightening process of traditional Maori Kite making. Make your own Manu Tukutuku (Maori Kite), as part of a celebration of celebrating Matariki (Maori New Year).Then take home a Maori Kite & lots of knowledge.
Ancient Maori kite flying traditions have a highly symbolic connection to Matariki – the two were historically inseparable. Kites were seen as connectors between heaven and earth.
This interactive workshop will give you the opportunity to create & fly your own kite made from traditional materials of raupo, nikau & harakeke.
Your guides, Harko Brown, Verbina Kopa & Katie-Mae Crawford are the members of He Manu o Aotearoa from Kerikeri. In addition to teaching the kite making, they will perform the kite flying laments & lead some traditional, korari, poi toa & warrior poi games.
In September, 2006 the group travelled to France to participate in the largest kite festival in the world.
