Activities

Creative people thrive here and that’s reflected in Nelson Tasman’s abundant and surprisingly diverse arts and artisans community.

Many of our celebrated artists, sculptors, jewellers, potters and ceramic artists have studios you can visit or are represented at galleries around the region. Or, you can catch a snapshot of the region’s creative output at the weekly Nelson Saturday Market and Motueka Sunday Market. 

Ride the train, fly the plane, taste the history and meet our working artisans. Something's always happening at Founders! ... View details
