Softstone Sculpture

UXBRIDGE Arts & Culture

After the popularity of our first class we are lucky to have MAha Tomo back to teach another workshop at UXBRIDGE. Maha has been facilitating bone carving (Rangatahi) and resin casting (Tamariki) workshops for the last 5 years incorporating Maori values such as Tikanga customary practices Whakawhanaungatanga, togetherness, Manaakitanga, Support and Mahi toi working towards a finished art piece. The softstone method is easy to learn. Work as the block hardens and complete a sculpture in one rewarding day. First timers and experienced artists love it!
