Press play to see how Room 7 made their Korowai Cloaks.
A korowai is a Maori cloak. It is made out of feathers. People in the Maori culture mainly wear a korowai at special occasions with pride and honour.
Making a korowai builds relationships as people work together to make this cloak. A korowai can take more than one year to create because they are mainly hand woven.
Room 7 made a korowai. We traced our hands and put our korowai together. We were building positive relationships during the process of making our korowai. Each group agreed on a korowai design and colours for their korowai. We enjoyed making our korowai cloak.
