Teaching on St Helena Island

 Of the many wananga and workshops Veranoa has taught over the years, one of the most unusual was a five week residency on the second most remote island in the world. St Helena Island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean is covered in harakeke, NZ Flax. Here Veranoa is teaching a resident of the island how to use this natural resource with raranga. The aim was to help develop a cottage industry for the people of the island.
