For the past few weeks, my class and I were creating Island designs onto a piece of brown paper. The Island design we were contributing to make is called, a Tapa design. The Tapa design is from the Island, Tonga.
The materials you may need are:
1: Brown paper
2: A Pencil
3: Crayons (Black, Brown or Gold)
4: Brown Dye
I am going to tell you the 3 easy steps of how to make Tapa. First thing you need and do is, get a brown piece of paper and sketch your tongan design. Secondly, you get the crayons (Black, Brown and Gold) and colour in. The final step is, to dye your brown piece of paper. After you have done these three simple steps, your tapa is done!
If you have a group of friends or family attending to do this, you could make a big piece of tapa and have it on your wall to make a display. It’s a lot of fun to make!
