Course Tutor(s):  Ron Te Kawa Education happens everywhere, not just at school. For Maungarongo “Ron” Te Kawa, learning is most powerful when it has meaning. An artist, storyteller and quilter, Ron has a special affinity for encouraging people to tell their own stories in visual, tactile form.

Purpose of the Course: “The quilts are a whānau learning resource – a gift for the next generation,” says Ron. “Most end up on a wall, telling their whānau story.”
