interesting workshop which I can highly recommend
Dec. 2019
This is a well run family business. The parents who are both practicing silver smiths teach the art of traditional jewelry making in a workshop style. Their son and his cousin speak english very well, they explain everything which is happening. The cost for the 3 hours class is 14 EUR per person. Their place is located ca. 20 minutes from Galle by car. They pick you up from Galle bus station with a tuktuk. Snacks are served at the beginning of the class. Then they show raw gems, semi-precious stones and their own made jewelry. After the gems show was over we were welcomed to make our own jewelry. I have chosen to make a silver ring and helped making it from scratch. Except for the polishing part for which a machine was used, everything was done handmade. The workshop costs do not the cover the material used for the ring, of course. For that I have paid 27 US $. The ring I wear proudly. I didn’t feel pushed to buy additional items. It was a very interesting workshop which I can highly recommend.
