about our TEAM
Kia Ora (Hello) It is with great pleasure to have woven your Wahakura Rīwā ... and help support your pēpe (baby) in safe sleeping.
I am proud to be part of the team to create your wahakura. I love weaving Wahakura Rīwā and am passionate about supporting your baby to sleep safely with you. I hope you get a lot of enjoyment from your Wahakura Rīwā, and it has a long life with you and your whānau!
Kia ora, I have been weaving for some years and have a great passion for it. When I heard about the weaving class for wahakura with Riwa, I hopped on board to learn at her wānanga, and enjoyed everything about the Wahakura Rīwā.
It took a while to get the technical aspect of it, but am now enjoying weaving with the other girls who are in this rōpū.
Kia ora! In 2019 I graduated with a Level 5 Diploma in Raranga at Te Wananga O Aotearoa in Hastings under the tutelage of Karmen Thomson. I also attended one of Riwa Wawatai’s wānanga Wahakura Rīwā and had the honour of being invited to be part of her team.
As a relatively new weaver it is a privilege for me to be creating wahakura for newborn tamariki. We often wonder what kind of baby will be sleeping in the Wahakura Rīwā we’re currently working on.
I hope you and your pēpe enjoy using the Wahakura Rīwā as much as I enjoyed making it, and sleep safe and secure.
I attended on of Riwa Wawatai's 8 week basic weaving classes a year ago and then a Wahakura Rīwā weekend wānanga. It was after that class I was invited to be part of this team of weavers.
Since I am a new weaver, I feel very blessed to be creating wahakura for newborn babies.
I enjoy weaving Wahakura Rīwā. I am proud to be part of the team that has made your baby's Wahakura Rīwā. Safe Sleeping!
