A well constructed and organised day centered around a piece that would be significant for me, and, very important: achieve able! Interesting and very enjoyable!

One of the best experiences!
Jan 2019 • Couples
One of the best experiences so far during our 1 year trip in Asia!
The dude is incredibly friendly and picked us up from our hotel. We both made a ring each and they came out amazing.
You literally make everything from scratch...even melt down the silver!

The price is really cheap as well considering how much effort goes into it and how much silver you get given!!

The feeling of making your own jewelry is the best feeling ,
The guy took us from the hotel and back.
7 hours of a lot of fun,we learned a lot .
Make sure to bring a lot of water , it gets very hot in the workshop.
And come ready with few ideas of what you want to make.

Doesn’t exist. Well not at the address given on Tripadvisor
Jul 2018 • Couples
Spent have a day in tropical storm trying to find this place to make an appointment, the address and area shown by tripadvisor is incorrect or the company out of business or moved, their website is useless! Even the locals looked at the address and didn’t know of it and local taxi drivers laughed and told me I was only around the corner from the taxi rank, where I had already been searching.
Great way to celebrate the silver wedding anniversary, had we been able to book it!

Educational, artistic day of fun
Feb 2018 • Couples
My husband and I visited Mr. Yot’s workshop to make our wedding rings.
We had no prior experience and our design ideas were vague but Mr. Yot helped us choose stones, and made our imagination a reality.
Mr. Yot was at the workshop before 10:00 when we were scheduled to start, and finished just before 17:00.
He is the most patient, good-natured teacher that one can hope
for, and lead us through each step with clear instructions.
The process was like being in a science lab, and truly educational. I have a new appreciation for jewelry now.
I think those appling for the workshop shiuld be aware that silverwork involves lots of flames and hammering. Therefore the workshop is hot, and you will be sweating all day. You should dress in comfortable clothing that you dont mind getting dirty, and bring lots of water.

Beyond expectation

I did a two-day workshop with Yot. It was excellent. He very nicely picked me up and dropped me off from the other end of the island, both days. The workshop itself was super, Yot is low key in approach, very patient, clear with his instruction. He answers questions thoughtfully and is focused on what you want to achieve and how to help you get there. In two days, I made a fairly complex ring and a pendant, learning a variety of techniques. It's been super cool to have people compliment me on my jewelry and being able to say I made it. I highly recommend you arrive with a concept, drawing or photo of what you want to do. Also, he does not do casting in the workshop so some things cannot be done. Best to bring a few images so you have options. I highly recommend this workshop!

A lovely birthday treat!
Feb 2016 • Couples
My husband surprised me with a day here for my birthday!
Together in a 1 day workshop, we made a matching set of earrings and Necklace. It was hard work, but lots of fun! Yot is such a lovely guy and was able to help us create something beautiful, he really is incredibly talented at what he does and so very patient with his students!
I would recommend this day to anyone. It was such an interesting & enjoyable experience and then at the end you have a lovely piece of jewellery to show for it!

Recently did a 1 day workshop with a friend, we both thoroughly enjoyed it!
Yot is very friendly and helpful, very experienced, and made sure our rings turned out great!
Very good value and provides a treasured wearable memory of your trip!
I've also ordered a custom made cuff bracelet from Yot which I'm very excited to pick up next week!

Amazing experience!
Apr 2015 • Business
Went with my girlfriend to try out the one day course. Yot was awesome, very friendly, helpful and extremely patient with teaching us first timers. We both made a ring each and Yot helped us design it, and was with us every step of the way in making them perfect. He has a very good eye for perfection and was constantly giving us good advice and helping us out. Highly recommend this as an educational experience and a great souvenir at the end.
