Here you will be surrounded by Cretan nature and indulge in the fine crafted wines and winery grown foods. The entire experience will take.place outside in a well ventilated area.

I’m the founder of WildRock Co. a custom goldsmith business, featuring hand-crafted, solid silver and gold jewellery. I'm a Canadian goldsmith who studied at George Brown in Toronto. Growing up I always loved Greek mythology, as well as, gold and gemstones. It only made sense to teach a hands-on jewellery class for anyone wanting to make a special memory here in Crete, Greece. I, together with the guest will use ancient sand-casting techniques to create a ring or pendant. After casting you are taught how to polish to make a stunning piece of wearable art. Just like the ancient Greeks!

Weskey is a great teacher. He guided us along a step-by-step path to obtain a simple but very fine jewel. He explained very well every phase of the process, helping each of us when in trouble or in doubt. A special mention to the wines of the Manousakis winery, place of the workshop, that engaged my "creativeness".

Wonderful, memorable experience in a fabulous place to take back home. Wesley made it fun and helped if needed, so don't pass up this adventure. Great stories and we met friendly participants. The food was fantastic and the outdoor setting couldn't have been any better. Just loved every minute.

The workshop was excellent: Wesley was super patient, explained each and every single detail. He made the workshop super fun so everyone feels comfortable and the time was passing by so fast! Outstanding wine tasting and the food was so yum! At the end of the day, we were all looking at our rings and are happy and proud of what we have achieved. We would totally come back and recommend it to our friends to share the experience - Thanks Wesley again for the amazing day!

Fantastic experience. I wasn't expecting such a cool thing. Making a shiny object out of thin air felt incredible. I went with the mirror ring which is more difficult shape and it looks fantastic. Surely a result from my natural talent and Wesley's decade of experience as a goldsmith. Would recommend 100%. Also we had lunch and so much wine!
