Year 12 Contemporary Whakairo Carving

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. Harmer-Campbell

Students will research and explore traditional and contemporary ‘Whakairo’ carving processes and then create a unique taonga for someone special in their life. They will use the design process to develop and simplify their ideas. The art-making skills involved in this process are drawing, wood-cutting, and painting. The final outcome is for the students to take home at the end of the course. (NB: This is not a traditional Māori carving course).
