Workload

Edit Workload Content

Learning hours for this course are 150 hours over 12 weeks. Consider learning hours to be the total of class time and your own time. Therefore, you should expect to spend three hours each week in class, and at least eight hours each week outside of class. Outside of class time you are expected to complete the readings, complete assignments and to practice mahi raranga. In order to learn raranga students must commit time to the practical application of this tūpuna art form.

Students are expected to bring harakeke to class and also at times to bring prepared harakeke ready for weaving. Harakeke will be supplied for the first few sessions and from then on students must source their own harakeke according to tikanga.

With your permission your work may be displayed in a public arena such as exhibition or performance.
