Museum Visit

Last week we went to the Museum to learn all about organic pigments and natural tools and Toi Māori (Māori Art).
We worked with Margie and explored different ways we can make paint and what we could use to paint with. We had a go at painting with feathers and we made our own brush from harakeke. We used onion skins and walnut pods to make dye. We also used paints made from ochre. We used the pigments and tools to create our own tapa patterns.

We also work with Awhina to learn about Toi Māori. We looked closely at different whakairo. We learnt they were used to tell stories and show history. We explored all the different patterns and discovered that different places around the country have different styles and patterns special to them.
