AOTEAROA BONE & STONE CARVING

WELCOME TO ABSCA

Five years ago we took a leap of faith to create a new path to promote well being and connection in New Zealand. Fusing Mahi Toi (Maori Art) and social work The Toi Manawa initiative was formed it has now evolved to become Aucklands first indigenous Kaupapa led bone and stone carving academy.

We work with many schools, organisations, correctional facilities, Marae and tourism ventures fostering connections, professional development, cultural competency and creative practice
