Learn about the practices associated with Māori arts whilst creating a Toki/Whao (Chisel/adze) taonga in this full 1-day workshop at Kororareka Marae on the Russell Waterfront.

Presented by Aotearoa Bone and Stone, participants will be using diamond wheels, drills, wet and dry sanding, and polishing tools, to create a Toki pendant. Traditional Polynesian braiding and lashing techniques will complete the pendant ready to wear in this contemporary Tikanga based workshop.

Maximum of 10 participants. This all day workshop is held in the marae.
Given the duration of this workshop, we recommend it is suitable for ages 15+

This event is presented as part of the Matariki Pēwhairangi Festival 2024 with funding from Pub Charity and Northland Inc to make these workshops possible.
