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!

Sitting in the valley surrounded by the most amazing foliage, this is the best place for a jewelry making course. Westley is knowledgeable, friendly and an absolute giggle. The smithing is good fun, the food out of this world and wine absolutely exceptional. I cannot recommend this trip enough.

Set in the magical location of Manousakis winery, Wesley welcomed us with a glass of wine and the afternoon got better from there!! Wesley's knowledge of the winery and various wines produced we're interwoven with his vast knowledge of the jewellery making process. The crafting it's self was great fun, and Wesley expertly guided us through the process, provided history of the method used right back to Minoan times, and ensured we left not only with stunning items, but with the sense of achievement that comes with it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone as a great afternoon well spent, but it is a must do for budding jewelers, and wine drinkers a like.

We had one of our best experiences of our entire Greece trip with Wesley! He was funny, entertaining and very knowledgeable as a goldsmith. He was also so patient with us was such a pleasure to meet him. We made our wedding rings together and will forever cherish the memories. The activity is hosted at one of the best wineries in Crete. It was a beautiful setting with lots of wine and food being served. Thank you so much Wesley for this experience! We will be back soon!

A unique experience learning how to craft a silver ring in a few hours! Wesley was a brilliant teacher, explaining the whole process and guiding us all the time. We were delighted with the results. We had a lot of fun and Wesley kept us well entertained. All accompanied by a generous wine tasting and delicious lunch in the winery which was a magical setting. The restaurant and shop are tastefully and immaculately designed and we loved the history of the place with the 1,000 year-old olive tree! We would highly recommend this to anyone.
