  • A special artist village. A lot of enthusiastic people, the one more neat than the other. In the shop are nice things to buy, but bring a full wallet.
  • Hand made art 👍👍👍👍👍
  • Great inspiration
  • Very impressed with the centre. I bought a rare scrimshaw(fossilized walrus tooth). Others available.My wife bought a stunning necklace in the same shop. We chatted with the artist and wandered among the other rustic studios at will. Unique location, great use of a disused site, close to town. Offers a basic café and summer school art classes for those willing to open their creative side. One of the highlights in our 10 week tour of NZ.
  • Artistic haven and creative mecca a minute's walk from the city centre, but surrounded in native bush. Peaceful, tranquil, glorious coffee and a waterfall to boot. Stunning artworks and creations for sale. Don't miss it!
