Presented by The Veiqia Project and Te Uru at the newly re-opened All Goods, join us for a Fijian weaving workshop to celebrate the arts within Fijian communities.
Learn how to weave with master artist Joana Monolagi (Serua) and artist Luisa Tora (Kadavu). Joana and Luisa are working on an upcoming project at Te Uru, which uses magimagi, cane and masi to create tanoa and a bure kalou. Come together as Joana and Luisa share how they continue their Fijian arts here in Aoteraoa, and how they wind and work with material in Tāmaki.
“I don’t want the knowledge of this art lost to us as it is something that defines who we are.” – Joana Monolagi.
