Leaves you with a beautiful meaningful Marama Pendant and increases ones general knowledge in Maori Tikanga, all whilst having so much fun, meeting awesome people and having a laugh with great facilitators Maha and Laura. One of the best workshops I have ever done!

This one day workshop was excellent and very well organised. Maha and his lovely wife / assistant were awesome and we shared food, music and knowledge. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

This was my first time attending a Corban Estate Art Centre workshop and I really enjoyed it. Maha is such a skilled artist and so generously shared his knowledge with us. A patient teacher, we were all well supported as we learned how to sand, polish and shape our taonga, and then add binding / lashing. Highly recommend this workshop to others and looking forward to attending more soon. Ngā mihi nui, Tracy
