I really enjoyed this class. It was fun and everyone in the class ended up with a beautiful necklace at the end. Maha and his wife was very helpful in teaching and guiding us.

Really enjoyed the day. Class was a good size. Teachers were lovely, generous with their extensive knowledge of pounamu, carving and the Maori world and also flexible to the needs of each student. I recommend the class to others and am hoping to do it again next year.
