Harakeke disc for Kids First, Hokitika

Kids First kindergarten in Hokitika commissioned me to weave a wall hanging in harakeke (NZ flax) to reflect what the staff thought were the key aspects of their teaching.

The brief was for a circular piece 60cm in diameter, in blues and greens incorporating the words:

  • manaakitanga
  • mana tiaki
  • passionate
  • learner
  • creative
  • collaborative

These words were stitched with thin strips of harakeke dyed green onto narrow bands of woven natural harakeke which radiate from the centre of the disc.
