Estelle Withy

Kia-ora, Estelle Withy is a Kairaranga (practitioner of maori weaving techniques). For Estelle Raranga is a way of life, a meaningful connection with the land of Aotearoa and a humbling journey into understanding the ways of traditional Maori arts, tikanga and history.

Estelle is grateful to have received these teachings and, as a Pakeha Kairaranga, to be a part of elevating and bringing this mahi toi to as wider an audience as these ancient techniques deserve.

Estelle acknowledges Bibbins Tangitu and her whanau for her teachings and aroha. Nga Mihi
