Purekireki Marae

Purekireki Marae

At the Marae, I learnt how to carve and weave. Weaving was  different to how I expected it to be. This is a photo of me doing the weaving with Pippi.  We made Putiputi. Putiputi means flower. We were asked to name our putiputi. I named mine Putiputi of harakeke. We also learnt how to carve. Carving was quite different to how I expected. You use a chisel and a mullet. It was hard work learning how to carve. We got a choice of what picture we wanted to carve. I chose a koru because I wanted a bit of a challenge.

  2. I like the weaving and the carving images that we saw at school Ella. If I hadn't gone to Ausie I would have had a lot of fun with you. Asarina
