The most vibrant and colourful wharenui you will ever see is coming to Waikato Museum!

Over the past eight years, husband and wife duo, Lissy and Rudi Robinson-Cole, have been using their creative energies to explore mātauranga Māori through crocheted sculptural forms.

Bringing together bright, neon colours and traditional toi whakairo (māori carving) shapes, Wharenui Harikoa (House of Joy) is their most ambitious creation to date - a full-scale wharenui (meeting house) completely crocheted by hand. The aim of Wharenui Harikoa is to manifest intergenerational healing and deeply felt joy, one loop at a time, connecting all people and igniting joy globally.

All you need is love – and wool!
