Arts & Culture

The Nelson Tasman region is the undisputed creative arts centre of New Zealand.

This is where the World of WearableArt (WOW) event was born and the internationally acclaimed Hoglund Art Glass studio has been in operation for thirty years. The region has over 300 working artists. Painters, sculptors, ceramic artists, potters, glass blowers, jewellers, actor,  writers and creators draw energy from the spectacular natural environment and create art and crafts that have a unique and personal signature attached to them. For Hobbit fans, the jeweller that made the One Ring, Jens Hansen is also in Nelson.
