Te Ringa Mahorahora

October 15 – January 18

Nau mai ki tō tātou 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, exponents, proteges, designers, innovators, pattern makers, leaders, exemplars, multi-disciplinaries, writers, 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 millennium.
 

Open 11 am – 4 pm Monday to Saturday

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.

Gallery hours are Mon-Sat 11-4pm 

For guided group tours please contact kaitiaki toi.

Raranga, raranga taku takapau,
Ka pukea e te wai,
Hei moenga mo aku rei.
Ko Rupe, ko Manumea,
Ka pukea: ē! ē!
Mo aku rei tokorua ka pukea.
Ka pukea au e te wai,
Ka pukea, ē! ē!
