Toi Hauāuru Studio

Top choice art in Raglan

Run by local artist Simon Te Wheoro, this excellent gallery/shop is located 2km from Raglan on the road from Hamilton. Contemporary artwork and sculpture with a Māori influence and pounamu (greenstone) carvings are for sale. Simon is also skilled in the Māori art of ta moko (tattoo) – if you’re keen for one, get in touch via the website.

Quirky local surfwear and colourful Māori hei tiki (pendants) make affordable and interesting souvenirs.
