The Nelson Tasman area in general and Golden Bay, in particular, are famous for their artisans.  Golden Bay artists produce a fantastic variety of artwork and many are nationally recognized, exhibiting in art galleries all over New Zealand.  Almost every side road in Golden Bay boasts an artist of some sort – potters, painters, sculptors, bone carvers, jade carvers, silversmiths, wood turners, jewellers, photographers, soap makers and weavers of flax, willow and wool as well as the more unusual such as candle makers, a trug maker and a drum maker.  For an up-to-date directory see artists in Golden Bay
