Weaving Whānau Wellness





Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga is excited to have a presence in Pā Harakeke with a weaving innovation offering free wānanga for hapu whānau to learn about weaving for haputanga (pregnancy).




Te Whare Pora is a safe space with tikanga and kawa values that will provide whānau with opportunities to link with other community members while experiencing pathways towards wellness through weaving and whanaungatanga.


Wānanga schedules to be arranged between whānau, Kairaranga and Kairingahora. 

No forms to fill out, wānanga  will involve harvesting, karakia, tikanga harakeke and storytelling.


You will find us at :

Shop 16, Flaxmere Shopping Centre,

12 Swansea Road, Flaxmere.
