Ali Brown weaves flax or harekeke. She works mainly from her home in Sefton, North Canterbury but has done flax weaving workshops as far afield as Norfolk Island. In 2009 she published her first instructional book called Weaving Flowers from New Zealand Flax, and there's another book in the pipeline.
