Crafting Aotearoa: A Cultural History of Making in New Zealand and the Wider Moana Oceania

Karl Chitham, Kolokesa Māhina-Tuai and Damian Skinner

"What connects the practice of Māori tattoo, the spectacular adornments worn by Samoan students during graduation, the finely made scoria walls in Auckland gardens, and the renewed respect for and appreciation of Pākehā artisan skills such as knife making? In twenty-first-century Aotearoa New Zealand, the handmade object and all the knowledge and skill involved in making it are celebrated by many different groups, and for many different reasons."


A significant new history of craft, Crafting Aotearoa maps three centuries of multicultural making and thinking in New Zealand and the wider Moana Oceania.
