Make your own makawe takatāpui (wig) with artist Arapeta Hākura.⁠
Using gathered natural and contemporary materials, join the artist as they guide you through the construction of your own wig - to wear and take home! ⁠

Hākura’s beehive wig, Kuīni, is a central part of their new installation Bunnie’s Blue Moon, in the Open Window until 13 October. ⁠

Constructed from kiekie gathered from the shores of Omaha beach, Kuīni honours generations of high-camp, high-glamour performers who preceded the artist, and sits within a broader investigation which re-establishes Hākura’s connections to Taranaki, and offers routes to refamiliarise themselves, and us, with the nuance and potential of takatāpui joy at the edge of the moana.⁠

All materials provided. This workshop is open to people age 15+.⁠
This workshop is held alongside Arapeta Hākura’s exhibition Bunnie’s Blue Moon, on until 13 October.⁠
