Create your own whale’s tooth out of bone in this tikanga based contemporary workshop designed for rangatahi. Our festival workshops were a huge hit with the youth that attended, so we are back by popular demand and have added another venue option in Russell / Kororareka! Both sessions sold out very quickly last year, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

“This was amazing, best thing I have ever done”

“I really loved it, it was crazy we could make something so cool out of a bone”
Some 2023 Workshop Students Feedback

Presented by Aotearoa Bone and Stone, participants will be introduced to a new skill set through the carving design process, using grinders, drills, wet and dry sanding techniques and polishing tools. Then learn some lashing and binding techniques used traditionally throughout Polynesia.

This workshop is 4hrs duration and solely for young people aged 8 – 15 years old. Please note that numbers are restricted to a maximum of 10. We politely request that parents do not stay.
