This a very exclusive and hands on experience. You will be the only person in the studio carving the Jade with lots of one to one teaching. I look forward to welcome you into my, personal daily, workspace and will show you where you will be creating your treasure! I will go over any health and safety tips as well as explaining how my equipment works. You will be able to pick a piece of Jade which speaks to you, due to it color, size or shape. You can also choose to work with a special beach pebble you may have found during your travels. The next step will be to make a simple sketch appropriate to the stone you chose. From here on the fun will begin! You get to carve your basic design and get to see it come to life in your hands! I will show you all the processes to complete your art work to your liking. Some processes are grinding the Jade with diamond wheels, drilling holes, sanding and polishing. Please note that we are working with genuine New Zealand Jade which will have its own characteristics and inclusions and may not always take a high shiny polish. In the 3 hours you will be able to create a basic shape appropriate to your skill level, too intricate work is not very realistic. Please contact me for any other times and or days available as im happy to rearrange to suit your itinerary!
Il tuo host
I am a trained Jade carver and have a Diploma in Jade and other Hard Stone Carving. I was a student at The Tai Poutini Polytechnic in Greymouth 17 years ago. It is the only school in the world teaching this skill. Over the years I have helped many tourist creating their own NZ keepsake either for themselves or as a gift for a special person in their lives. Anyone can have this experience and you dont need to know anything about carving!
