Very fun experience and you keep your art work.

After a short tour through the store's museum for a history of Guatemalan jade, we were led to the jade workshop. The guide helped us pick our jade color and shape pattern. He then instructed in cutting and polishing the jade. Even with modern machinery it was hard work, but fun. One of the highlights of our trip to Guatemala.

This was such a fun experience! Eric was very friendly and knowledgeable about how jade was worked in the past and how it was redeveloped in the late 20th century. Very enjoyable and informative!

We had an amazing experience!!! We were paired with Sassy (sp?) and Oswaldo (sp?). Sassy was our tour guide and went over the differences of jade with us and helped guide the way of picking our jade and shape. Oswaldo has been working with jade 30+ years and he showed us how to carve and shave down the jade as well as shine it. It was an overall great experience that we got a souvineer with at the end! Sassy and oswaldo then walked us over to the near by capuchin as church to see some Antiguan history.

Everyone here is so very helpful and patient. The instructions were precise and I found the making of the Jade piece was very relaxing. This was my 2nd visit and they still had my picture from my previous visit on the picture wall in the Jade room. Impressive

We did the jade carving on the day we were leaving Guatemala. Had an evening flight so did the morning class. We should've done this earlier! It was so much fun to learn about the history and culture of jade, then we got to make our own jewelry (jade only). Reach out to the TO - there are actually more class varieties available. If you are looking to shop for some jade, check their store out as well. Lots of selection and the price range is better than most other jade factories/stores in Antigua.

I wouldn't say this was exactly "carving" Jade as much as it was polishing. It was still a good experience but I was expecting a different end product. I ended up with a fairly nice sized teardrop shaped pendent which was probably worth the $50 paid. It is a beautiful store and you do learn about the Jade mined in this area.

My partner and I decided to take this workshop thinking it'd be a fun random activity. We came out of it soooooo excited to see our finished craftsmanship. Diego was our guide and his passion for Jade carving was infectious. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed the Jade Museum tour, picking out the color stone for my jewelry piece and the yummy free coffee you get to drink while on your tour
