Whangawehi Community Day 25/01/2014

Tairawhiti Museum Visit

On Monday we were very lucky to have some very talented visitors at the school. Aaron and Amber came to visit us from Tairawhiti Museum in Gisborne. 

Room 1 spent their time translating the meanings behind kowhaiwhai patterns. We had the chance to view some beautiful work and then began creating our own kowhaiwhai patterns using our knowledge of the historic stories of Mahia. There were a lot of beautiful designs planned, and it was neat to see all our talented artists hard at work.

Miss O'B and myself cannot wait to see these patterns finished and hopefully up on panels so that they can be exhibited around the school.
