These workshops sit alongside Wharenui Harikoa at Objectspace, an installation by Lissy Robinson-Cole and Rudi Robinson.

Tunaga Funaki (Nana Tu) is an artist based in Tāmaki Makaurau. She enjoys sharing her love of weaving, crochet, sewing and knitting with younger generations of the Niuean community in Aotearoa.

Juliette Laird is a Tāmaki Makaurau artist whose interest in connection, to place and to others, has often led her to use domestic handcrafts as a medium. She has used crochet to create forms out of varied materials, enjoying the open-ended nature of the process, just adding one loop to another.

Margaret Lewis is a contemporary textile artist using traditional crafting techniques (knitting, crochet, embroidery, macrame).  Her practice re-contextualises craft through the use of unexpected materials and easily found (and often discarded) items.

This event is delivered as part of Wharenui Harikoa at Objectspace.

Wharenui Harikoa at Objectspace  is supported by the Local Activation Fund Programme, administered by Tataki Auckland Unlimited on behalf of the New Zealand Government, and our generous sponsors:
