In this two-hour workshop you can learn together with our expert carvers about the ancestral art of designing, cutting, carving and customizing your jade piece that you could then take with you in a necklace, bracelet or key ring. It is a unique experience where you will learn because jade has been so important since ancient times, related to eternal life and love. Today is our national stone. Take a piece of Guatemala with you.
