"As a Kaitiaki for Taonga Maori, my primary passion has been in the care of, preservation and conservation of Taonga Maori."

"Weaving allows me to create contemporary pieces using traditional techniques and resources. Weaving through my parents, Kaumatua and Rangatira - they are with me every step of the way guiding and assisting, as I weave my own thoughts and ideas within each piece." 


Selina Wakefield.
