To celebrate Matariki we made a korowai. All of our toddlers made a collage feather and the teachers made one too, then we put them all together to make our cloak. This korowai is representative of all the children in our room. It was the central part of our wall display on Matariki this year.

This is a class Korowai cloak we made using a cotton fabric.  The stylised feather pattern was drawn onto the fabric and then each child decorated their feather using pastels.  Once finished each piece was dyed using good old school dye.  Each piece was then cut out, backed with iron on interfacing and edged on the sewing machine.  Then using fabric glue each feather was then glued onto a larger piece of fabric and to finish off patterned ribbon was glued on to the top of the cloak.
