Ebonie will also be hosting one special tauaki where you can bring your own cloths to unfold and learn from together. Tapa being cared for in this time include a ngatu that serves the Point England Kindergarten community, ngatu from the homes of friends in Maui, Taranaki, Whangarei, Whakaoriori, and Tamaki, ceremonial ngatu belonging to family, and some intriguing siapo, masi, lafi and ngatu that Andrew Pendergrast at KIWA Art has generously allowed us to borrow.
