Hokitika - JADE Carving Class

Add to List

Create your own Jade jewellery masterpiece!

The Lake Mahinapua Hotel is a local institution, bringing together West Coast history and creative talent.

Take a seat in one of their Jade carving classes and learn to carve your own piece of New Zealand, with New Zealand Jade. Also known as Greenstone or Pounamu, Jade is a highly valued rock found in Southern New Zealand and has had multiple uses for generations in Maori history.

No experience with jewellery or machinery is required, the friendly local staff will pass on all their knowledge as it has been passed on to them.

Situated 12km South of Hokitika on a beautiful surrounding of native bush, lakes, beach and mountains, there’s no better place to take in some New Zeland history and take a little home with you.

Fun and stress free class

Don the smock, choose the stone, and get to work. Simple safe instructions for a beginner class. Please dont take that the wrong way, it was worth every penny and I would recommend it to everyone thats not an experienced sculptor. My wife made a surf board and I made a broken wine bottle.

Amazing experience!

The tutor was super friendly and helpful. You get to choose a stone you'd like to carve and design your own. The carving itself was pretty easy and fun! Our final pieces were beautiful and worth of money. Definitely would come back! Thanks.
