The Gallery's History

In the very early days of establishment, this gallery was

known as Hokitika Craft Gallery Co-Operative.

A gallery comprising of 18 members and fluctuated year by year.


The Gallery was well know for their

locally hand crafted artwork. 

But time flies  by as quickly as we can capture it and at

the start of 2019 the co-operative had 8 members left with many at their retirement age.

With that, the gallery too had to take its retirement.



The Gallery Now

We kicked the Gallery out of retirement and  re-opened

the doors in October 2019 as Hokitika Craft Gallery.


After giving the gallery a lift to new life and under

new management by art passionate couple

Juergen & Monika Schacke, the gallery is a beautiful

space to fill the soul with incredible pieces of artwork. 


We are delighted to be showcasing over 80 artists in our gallery. About 60% of artwork are locally made with some former members of the local co-operative returning.


And the rest?

 The rest of our artworks are crafted by our talented

artists from the rest of New Zealand.
