Te Ringa Māhorahora

Nau mai ki tō tatou whare pora, koia nei Te Ringa Māhorahora O Ngāti Raukawa, Te Ātiawa, Ngāti Toarangatira arā Ngā Ringatoi O Toi Matarau. Nei rā te tuku o Hine Te Iwaiwa kua whārikihia hei takapau wharanui mō te tangata. Mihia ngā puna waihanga huri noa.

Toi Matarau presents skilful weavers, creatives, designers, innovators, pattern makers, leaders, storytellers and artists. A culmination of wāhine and tāne who weave whakapapa, tikanga and mātauranga of Te Whare Pora in traditional and contemporary forms of our millenium.

In January 2021, Māoriland’s inaugural Ngā Aho Whenua Weaver’s Residency began with Sonia Snowden and Pip Devonshire.

The aim is to showcase their weaving skills and to support their desire to collaborate with other weavers of Kāpiti and the confederation.

Innovative examples of raranga can be examined in Te Ringa Māhorahora as an exhibition that connects threads of excellence by the artists in this lineup. Concepts birthed from the challenges of COVID that changed, transformed and opened artists up to unexpected discoveries. ‘Hine te i wai wa’ in the context of today is daring, commanding and creating new narratives changing time, space and reality.

Te Ringa Māhorahora is an exhibition that supports and promotes the inclusion of emerging artists through tikanga tuku iho led by kaumātua, pakeke, tuakana, teina uplifted by the pou of Te Whare Tapere o Māoriland.

Through this process new learning experiences and the diversity of Toi Matarau are enriched.
