BONE CARVING WORKSHOP
Spend the day at Waitangi Treaty Grounds this Matariki and create your own whale’s tooth out of bone in this tikanga based contemporary workshop!
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 sold out last year and is back due to popular demand.
Maximum of 10 participants. All-day workshop
