Tēnā koutou kātoa and Welcome to the website of Tahaa - Tāmoko studio and Māori arts online. Within this website you will find a range of Maori Arts from Tāmoko (Traditional Māori Body Art), Taonga Pūoro (Traditional Māori Musical Instruments), Whakairo (Māori wood carving), Stone Sculpture, Paint, Mixed Media as well as some stunning public works which are on permanent display in the community.
It is our hope that this website will offer visitors both an introduction as well as an insight into Māori arts and that there is something for everyone who may come to visit. Tahaa founder and Māori Arts Practitioner James Webster is regularly involved in wānanga around Aotearoa across the many related art forms and can be contacted through this website. With a home studio based in Coromandel Town, Coromandel James is available to do Tāmoko by appointment (also with a mobile facility for out of town work).
