Hey Everybody, Whanau and Friends,
I hope you are all having a wonderful day wherever you are and enjoying the fresh crisp Summer Air. It’s a beautiful day here in Gisborne – thanking our lucky stars..lol.. anyway while it’s here enjoy it!!
What a day.. spending it in the quiet, cool of the house with Classic Hits blasting whilst sorting through loads of photos and files on this computer.. It is amazing how much stuff u can accumulate over a couple of months.. Well at least now I can say they are all organised – for now that is..lol..until next year.
Merry Xmas to all you around the globe and to all my whanau travelling I hope you are all safe and well and arrive in good nick to your destination. Big loves to you all.
Anyway getting on with it – I was recently asked about Kakahu and Capes that I make so I thought I would post a few samples of my earliest and also recent works
The ones I made in my 1st Year at Toihoukura – Small Blue/ Pink and Green Back Cape and larger one Red/Natural and Green both gone to good homes. I thoroughly enjoyed making these pieces and I was mentored by Rawinia Wright – my 1st Weaving Tutor before Toihoukura.
The Blue/ Red and Black Cape is one of the more recent capes I made plus the full Cloak Kakahu that I made for my whanau and my sister Allysha recently wore to her High School Graduation in Australia which Tina Wirihana my current Mentor at Toihoukura helped me delve into learning the processes of forming and creating these types of kakahu. I continue to experiment and learn as much as I can from these very Knowledgable people.
Thank you to all my mentors, tutors, whanau and friends for all your support along the way.
I hope you enjoy.
