Discover how we craft greenstone on one of our free daily tours.
Every day you can join us in our Rotorua studio for a free guided tour. You’ll get to meet local artists James, Aka and Tamaora and see first-hand how they transform raw stone into carved art. Our artists will share with you their passion for the craft and show you some of the tools and techniques used to craft jade by hand.
During the tour your local guide will also take you on a journey into the history of pounamu carving in New Zealand, exploring the traditional Māori uses of the stone and powerful cultural legends passed down through generations.
We'll then show you around our gallery where you can experience the diverse styles of artwork crafted by talented kiwi carvers from across the country.
