Welcome to Te Koha Gallery Carve Your Own Studio.
Here in our warm and friendly studio you can spend time making your own personalized souvenir to take home.
We only use New Zealand jade sourced from our West Coast but also enjoy carving with the unique Aotea Stone (Kyanite), Rhodonite (Pink Stone), the rare Tangiwai NZ Bowenite). You will chose which piece of stone you would like to work with and then chose your design and under our guidance start the process of carving.
No skill base or artistic skill is required.
We have had many happy customers through our doors and each piece has been a unique experience. Allow yourself a minimum of 1 and a half hours.
Brilliant local activity on a rainy day in Franz Josef.
Open 7 days a week
