25 October 2019 • Pounamu Marama Pendant Workshop

This is the second workshop I have done with Maha. He is professional, relatable, lovely, and an amazingly talented craftsman. I would highly recommend anybody to do this class and I will be considering any of the carving workshops he offers. Best money spent in a very long time. Nga mihi Jacqui

Would highly recommend to anyone with an appreciation for our taonga - something I will remember for a long time . Best investment you could make for yourself and the special person you koha your taonga too.
