Collecting flax in Sydney is something of a mission, especially when its been raining cats and dogs for three weeks. Finally the sun comes out and before the next downpour we pick flax.

Four weavers attended a small workshop at Dulwich Hill. They made rourou, kono, waikawa and whariki. It was lovely korero about being Maori in Australia and the hunger to learn and know about raranga harakeke and te reo.

Its the Biennale in Sydney until August. Its all free and if you have time well worth the effort to go to the many exhibitions  on at the MCA & Cockatoo Island,Opera House Botanic Gardens , Artspace and Art gallery  NSW.
