For all bookings and general inquiries please contact us by email or phone.
Basic course for individual students (max. 5 students)|
This is our basic bone carving course where you will be guided through the process of creating your own unique bone pendant. There are a variety of different designs to choose from, priced from $ 55.00. There are no special skills required, all you need are about 2 hours of your time and a can do attitude to get you from a piece of raw material to a beautiful carving.
This course can be a very special and creative family activity. Minimum age is 10 years.
Group course (max. 12 students)
These courses are designed to give any group (these commonly include but are by no means limited to school, language centre, cooperate, tour, and private groups) the experience to create one of three different bone carving pendants. The class takes 1.5 hours and the cost is $ 50.00 per student. Feel free to inquire for bigger groups.
This is a personalised course which is customised to every student's specific interests and wishes. We work with you one-on-one for this course which covers the materials and techniques that the student expresses an interest in (e.g. horn, deer antler, lashing techniques, engraving). The cost of this course depends on duration and materials used, beginning at $150 per person. This entry level mentoring course covers one day over which you are free to create a carving of your own design in bone.
Students with an interest in woodworking are given the opportunity to make a custom Kauri box for their unique work (sample boxes are shown along my work in the gallery). However this is only available for those who have a minimum of three days to spend due to the time requirements of some aspects of the process (i.e. glue and varnish drying time).
