Paint your own kohatu

Paint your own kohatu

Create your own precious kohatu in our Toi Art Workshop

Toi Art is artwork unique to you that is painted onto kohatu (stone). These workshops are run by Te Mairiki Williams and the artwork original designs are uniquely his.

Prepare your kohatu with Te Mairiki’s guidance in your chosen colours.  Te Mairiki will then complete a sacred korowai appropriately on each kohatu.

These workshops run 11am – 3pm daily from Wednesday, 8th July – Sunday 12th July, on the mezzanine floor.

We anticipate these will be busy and space is limited, so we recommend booking by calling 982 0850.
