Mini format. Weaving was born of necessity. To keep the body warm, to clothe it; just as potters of pre-history made pots for mankind to hold foods and liquids. Both processes also express the human need to make and create, using the hands and eyes. This book describes briefly the traditional materials that Maori used for weaving over the centuries, the rituals, and how to make some simple objects such as headbands, flax mats, baskets and through to tukutuku panel weaving.
