West Coast Jade – Make your own jade pendant in the Jade Carving Workshop.

Tony is an experienced and talented jade carver. His work has been purchased from people from all over the world and he has awards from national competitions. The workshop is situated in our garden, (the studio is an artpiece in itself!) Tony offers  day tuition . Spend  the day learning to make a jade pendant and at the end of your workshop, under Tony’s guidance, you will have created a greenstone (Pounamu) pendant or touchstone carving of your own. During the day you will be taken through the background to the importance of this wonderful stone in our country, the great respect it commands as our “treasure”, and indeed the “heart” of this land “Aotearoa”. Jade stone carving requires expensive diamond tools to carve the stonebut the effort put in is rewarded by a sense of accomplishment in producing a wearable piece by the end of the workshop. Tony will take you through the stages required to make your pendant. You will need a full day for this workshop.

Price $250 – includes lunch and tea/coffee breaks – and photos of you working!.  There is also an opportunity to purchase Tony’s carvings  from the studio.

The choice is yours, whether you would like accomodation only/ experience the workshop only/ or stay in the cottage and do the workshop – your choice!
