About this experience

This workshop was created to awaken your artistic side, as well as, delight your senses. Offered here is exclusive access to two very unique worlds of art and flavour. You and a group of friends will learn about the ancient technique of jewellery making through sand casting while enjoying the tastes of an award-winning Cretan boutique winery. Found nowhere else in Greece, this workshop is a hands-on experience for up to a maximum of 10 attendees including yourself. You will be taught the ancient art of sand casting and with your choice of silver or gold (10k, 14k, 18k) you will cast and polish a beautiful piece of jewellery to keep. This workshop will take place at the picturesque Manousakis winery, located just outside of Chania city. Here you will be surrounded by Cretan nature and indulge in the fine crafted wines and winery grown foods.

Included in the booking fee is your 4-5 hours of instructed workshop time. All of the tools needed for casting and polishing will be provided. We will confirm before your workshop which of the solid precious metals you'd like to work with for your final piece, and what the price estimate will be. Finally, you will be given wine produced on site, as well as, fresh locally grown snacks during our break. The booking fee is not including the cost of the final metal used, I will give you an estimate before your arrival, and this cost will be calculated by weight at the end of each workshop and paid then.
