Carve Your Story

Discover the beauty and history of carving through our intimate greenstone carving experiences. All of our experiences start with a mihi and karakia. Our local carver, Timoti Moran, will take you to the streams of Te Tau Ihu where our pounamu is collected. He will introduce you to the awa and share the history and stories associated with this area, as well as stories of his own.

What manuhiri (guests) are saying

In our travels around NZ we were intuitively led to Timoti and discovered much more than the alluring beauty and significance of Pounamu.
 
We found in Timoti a true Gem and Living Treasure: this man, this soul, his sacred intentions of healing for all, and his devotion to practically contribute and teach for the greater wellbeing of the community.
 
Timoti and Pounamu will inspire you to your wise-heart and soulful living.” Dr Loretta do Rozario & Sharon Mitchell from Living Wellbeing & Wisdom
