Explore how climate influences the architecture of Fiji and the Pacific Islands with CultureALL Ambassador Catharine Wadsworth.
This hands-on workshop introduces the customs and traditions of Fijian architecture. Educational components include examining how climate and environmental resources play a big role in thatch house design. Weaving is an integral part of thatch house construction. Students will be introduced to basic weaving by creating their own “woven” fish, a craft that is taught to every Fijian child to learn this important skill.
