We had such an amazing day with Athulya! It was so interesting to learn about the different jewels and gems and the amazing traditional ways of making jewellery! My friend and I created a ring each and a pendant and we are so happy with our bespoke and individual pieces. Athulya was so friendly, welcoming and easy going. Our workshop took about 4 hours so definitely factor in spending enough time there to complete your pieces. Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Galle.

This was a wonderful experience, we were picked up and dropped off by a tuktuk included in the price (definitely couldn't of found the location on our own) we had a wonderful spread provided for us. There were many gems to choose from, at very reasonable prices and you can ask for a style of your choice to be created, provide pictures of anything that has caught your eye. Also of you need to mend any broken pieces of your own. We helped make a ring that I love and will treasure forever, it's very interesting to see how the traditional methods are used! Just note that it takes time to make jewellery and Athulya has an eye for perfection. It really makes you appreciate the work goes into the end product. Experiences like these should not be rushed. To give a rough idea we were picked up at 9:30am and returned at 3pm (definitely worth the cost) Overall we loved it, and wished we could of had more time and money to make more pieces with Athulya. Thanks!!

Amazing experience! Wonderful hosts who help explain it all and help to create pieces.. They spent hours with us to get the pieces finished, above and beyond expectations. Also tasty snacks and water provided and a lift to the bus station for my onward journey. Delighted I did this experience!

Great experience! We felt so welcome and learned a lot about gems and jewelry making. My seven year old joined and he was so proud over helping making his own ring:)

So on every big trip I try and do a jewellery workshop, I've done ones in Costa Rica, Thailand, India etc but this one really stood out to me due to immediate sense of friendship and welcoming. I knew I wanted to make a ring - came prepped with some pictures for inspiration (and some broken jewellery) and nothing was too much of a problem/ask. Your shown classical Sri Lankan/silver-smith'in techniques I've never seen before including manually melting the silver through breathwork and an ingenious way for drilling holes without a power drill. I never felt a pressure on time or products and got to speak to the whole family. This really is such a memorable experience and would recommend to anyone who can invest half a day - you'll come back with a unique gift and story to tell!!
