This course focuses on developing skills taught in the MĀORI 240 and MĀORI 241 courses, where knowledge and manual skills should have already been acquired. Students will be expected to research and produce one artefact which explores a comprehensive knowledge of pre-European techniques and traditionally used materials e.g., wood, stone, bone, shell, fibre. One exciting option will be the teaching of the making and use of stone adzes and chisels.

This course has had high positive feeedback ratings from past and present students.
