This one year diploma introduces you to traditional concepts in design and practise. You will develop an understanding of traditional design – its components and the world it was born in. The world of natural materials, their collection and preparation is explored through the medium of woven taonga. The techniques of tāniko, whatu and raranga are employed to create indigenous fashion and other woven art forms. Iwi, hapu and reo studies will enrich your learning and appreciation for taonga held by your whānau hapū and iwi.
This tohu is perfect if you are seeking to stimulate your inherent creative self both in the visual and language arenas and is the first year of study toward the three year degree programme.
