This workshop will take place at the picturesque Manousakis winery, located just outside of Chania city.

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!

Wesley was so kind to work with us and help us to do the experience in our limited window of time! We had a great time and will treasure our rings and the story of making them forever.

We were so lucky that Wesley agreed to run the workshop on our December visit. What a great experience. Wesley is absolutely delightful and patiently guided us through the entire process. We ended up with cute rings that will be cherished forever as perfect souvenirs from our visit to Crete.

This was an amazing experience! It ended up being a private session with just my friend and I, and we had the best time with Wesley. He was extremely funny and entertaining, with extremely good restaurant recommendations, and very knowledgeable about the art of sand casting! He was also extremely patient throughout the entire process and explained the purpose of each step. The final products turned out so beautiful and we were so happy with the results! Overall an incredible time and a must-do if you are visiting Crete!

This was a one of a kind experience and I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Chania! Wesley was an outstanding host and tutor, allowing us the freedom to create a custom piece of jewellery by guiding us through the necessary steps and processes whilst sharing lovely anecdotes relating to local history and jewellery and wine making practice. The wines from the winery were exquisite, as was the location and the food provided at the end of the workshop was delicious. A real highlight from our trip - do not hesitate to book, even if you feel that this might be a little out of your comfort zone - I can promise Wesley will make you feel at ease and you’ll leave the experience with some new skills and a beautiful piece of jewellery!
