Craicing North Down Jewellery Making Hygge

Sale price Price £180.00 Regular price

This "Craicing North Down Jewellery Making Hygge" experience is one of our newest workshops.

This experience combines jewellery making with the warmest of North Down welcomes. Guided by our goldsmith Ruth, each person will make their own piece of silver or copper jewellery (you can choose).  You will be introduced to basic metal-working techniques but with some more sophisticated skills/machinery in there as well.  Your personal handmade jewellery creation can reflect the blue/green elements of Ards and North Down, from our rolling drumlins to our rippling loughs, encompassing our beautiful scenery.  Participants will learn numerous techniques including piercing, filing, soldering, hammering/texturing and polishing to create a lovely silver or copper ring, pendant, earrings or bangle. The aim of these enhanced workshops is to showcase one of Ards and North Down’s hidden gems, tying in with the heritage of artisan craft and the natural landscapes.

Each guest on this "Craicing" experience will also receive their own recycleable gift bag containing a mini bottle of Prosecco, a selection of lovely local cheeses, chutney and crackers that they can take away too.

NI Silver’s Northern Irish hospitality will shine through as guests make their jewellery then sit outside overlooking Belfast Lough, wrapped up in locally made blankets, enjoying ‘hygge’ around the fire pit, chatting over refreshments and getting to know each other.  To enhance the experience your hosts are well versed in history, filming and travelling, so will keep you entertained with plenty of craic (chat).  This experience is suitable for all types of visitor/participants including children accompanied by their parents. 

NI Silver’s great location is easily accessible, located 10mins from Belfast in the Holywood Hills, perfect for a special occasion, tying in with award winning local eateries to create a wonderful day out. Its closeness to other attractions including Culloden Hotel & Spa, Ulster Folk Museum, Helen’s Bay, Bangor Museum and Bangor Walled Garden, make it the perfect unique experience for your short breaks or day out.

So why not gift this jewellery surprise to someone you love, or even treat yourself, as we will post you a gift certificate.

From the moment you arrive these are fabulously relaxed and fun experiences, come and spend some quality time with your family and friends on an experience you won't forget.
