Juliet Arnott from Rekindle & the festival of Necessary Traditions is coming down from Ōtautahi Christchurch to Ōtepoti Dunedin for the weekend of 5 & 6 September to run four fabulous workshops. Learn how to use tī kōuka cabbage tree leaves in basket weaving and how to make string. See the Rekindle website for times and other details. Bookings essential.

Tī kōuka (Cabbage Tree leaves) are so strong they can be problematic in the green-waste stream with the tough fibrous leaves bunging up the commercial compost shredders so that it is advised that they be disposed of as normal household waste.

This workshop will use fallen leaves and use these in a manner that treasures this valuable resource.

 

Thanks to Otago Community Trust and Dunedin School of Art for their support in hosting the workshops.

This workshop is an event in association with the Mapping the Anthropocene in Otepoti/Dunedin Symposium to be held  at the Dunedin School of Art 26 and 27 September.
