Come and explore our jade carving workshop in Rotorua!

Every day this summer you can join a free guided tour of our jade carving workshop and see how local artists James and Tama craft jade by hand. You'll discover the different tools and techniques that they use to transform raw stone into carved art and learn about the important role pounamu plays in Māori culture. Your guide will uncover the Māori myths and legends which breathe life into the stone and explore the traditional art of carving jade.

Tours run on request daily, between 10am - 5pm. Tours last 15-minutes and no bookings are required.
