DSC7308Learn about traditional Māori motifs and patterns in whakairo/carving, tukutuku/weaving and kōwhaiwhai/painting. Learn why different patterns tell stories for different iwi. See exciting examples of taonga in MTG's Māori gallery and in the new exhibition Turuturu: Fingers, Feathers & Fibre. Students will then create their own kōwhaiwhai design to take home. As part of this programme we will also be visiting our new exhibition Rongonui - treasured taonga from people, places and events.

Details of our current exhibitions can be seen here.
