About the Author:

Mick Pendergrast first became interested in plaiting and other Maori crafts while teaching in small communities in the East Cape area. He has maintained his interest and developed his expertise over a 40-year period, some of which was spent as a VSA teacher in the Solomon Islands and on the remote Polynesian outlier of Tikopia. He has curated major exhibitions of Maori weaving and published many books on Maori flaxcraft.
