A flax weaving demonstration by the Maori women takes place at the Wairakei Terraces near Taupo on the North Island of New Zealand. These women spend hours flax weaving while creating some beautiful artwork which can be used around the village or as traditional clothing for the Maori warriors.A few priceless items which are created by these women while flax weaving are baskets, clothes, purses, briefcases or clothing. The Maori mothers teach their children the techniques of flax weaving and this traditional artwork continues to be handed down from generation to generation.The Maori women at the Wairakei Terraces near Taupo, New Zealand, make this talent look easy until a visitor tries it for themselves and finds out that it is not quite as easy as these women make it appear.Maori flax weaving demonstration at the Wairakei Terraces near Taupo, North Island, New Zealand.
