One of my favourite shops in Hokitika is William Steyn's Stone Painting gallery.

This guy is incredible! The work is so intricate and detailed. He sells his painted stones from his shop beside Mountain Jade gallery on Weld Street. You can find little pieces from a few dollars up to his bigger works that have obviously taken hours to create. He’s a really interesting guy and is always happy to chat to his customers.

The Hokitika Craft Gallery

Hokitika Craft Gallery

The gallery is run as a cooperative by local artists in Hokitika. Here you can buy locally made pottery, textile craft/art, paintings, jade/pounamu carvings, woodwork items and jewellery.
