Whare Bidois

Ngati Rangiwewehi  Te Whanau a Apanui


Whare learnt about pounamu carving at school. He was then selected as a student on Te Takapu Rotowhio, New Zealand Maori Arts and Craft Institute Rotorua.  It was here that Whare had the opportunity to study under Lewis Gardiner and Stacy Gordine, two of New Zealand's leading Pounamu and Bone artists in New Zealand.  


Since Whare’s graduation, he has become a part of the Rakai Jade studio. "For as long I as can remember, I have had a  passion for Maori Art. Growing up I was surrounded by Ta Moko artists, carvers and painters,... I want to pursue my passion".”
