What an amazing place! Steve is just the loveliest person you will meet! We went in there in the morning on a very rainy day just as we were about to leave for Christchurch. I had found some stones on the beach the day before and Steve was so kind to look at them and identify whether they were jade or not. Sadly none of my rocks were but he was so lovely and offered me to try out some of his tools to have a go at grinding and polishing one of the rocks free of charge just for the experience. Because we were in a rush I ended up just purchasing one of the ready made jade necklaces which is just so beautiful. He was so lovely and even offered my 2 year old daughter a free gift for keepsake. I wish we had more time but hopefully we will be back one day to do a full carving workshop! Highly recommend everyone to check out this place when in Hokitika!
Definitely a place to visit while in city - regardless of the weather. It is a great experience to try to carve your own - you can make a simple one within an hour. Everyone we have met in there was so helpful and kind - really welcoming and warm atmosphere makes you to spend there a day. In case you decided too not express your creativity, you have available huge selection of already made pendants. Really enjoyed the visit.
