Anna Gedson

Anna works with a combination of materials – flax, feathers, paua, shells, glass, pounamu and cotton/rayon threads and more recently also with metals such as copper and aluminium.

“I have a love and respect for harakeke (flax) and enjoy the challenges of weaving and working with it. I have learned all the traditional Maori skills associated with weaving harakeke and have used those skills and knowledge to design and make perfect miniature kete from untraditional materials.
