Ms Smith has led the korowai group Whiri Aroha at Papakura Marae in Auckland since 2002, teaching students how to weave contemporary korowai using traditional Māori methods and modern materials. The classes are offered at a very low cost and have seen hundreds of students of all ages attend. She teaches in a volunteer role. She is an expert in the art of whatu (weaving), whiri (plaiting), tāniko (finger weaving) and māwhitiwhiti (crossover stitching). The Whiri Aroha group provide small korowai to families who have lost a child at birth at Middlemore Hospital. Her classes have seen an increase in the number of weavers in the local community, and she has used her expertise to spread awareness of korowai weaving in New Zealand, also spending time in Western Australia teaching local Māori weaving practices.
