"This pounamu wananga is fantastic! You learn the whakapapa, you feel the aroha and wairua that connects you with your taonga. I highly recommend this time and space to everyone."
"One of the best classes I've ever been to! Thank you to Maha and the team at ABSCA for an amazing experience - from learning about the korero, wairua, mauri of pounamu, to learning the stages of the process, working with new tools and sharing the day with the group was awesome. JTH
