Craft a personal memento of your travels
Known to New Zealand's indigenous Maori people as pounamu, jade or greenstone is treasured throughout the country, and in the North Island city of Rotorua, Rakai Jade provides travelers with the opportunity to craft a special memento of their visit. Working with local Maori artisans, a one-day 'Carve Your Own' experience incorporates the full process from initial design through to crafting the finished product. Popular traditional designs include pendants and stylized fish hooks, but if you can't spare the time, many excellent pre-carved pieces are also available. Booking at least one day ahead is recommended for a design and carving session.
