Kura Kaupapa

Today I went back to school.  Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Otepoti in Fairfield will be my school for Thursday afternoons for the next few terms as we work together to make a korowai for the school. Today we talked about design and had a go at drawing something the children thought would embody their school. Their designs are interesting and hopefully in the next week or two we will have decided on a design, feathers, size and taaniko pattern.
It is interesting going through the process with other people. Breaking down the decisions so that we can look at it all step by step helps me see what I usually do on the spur of the moment. I'm looking forward to this collaboration.
