Jewellery Enameling with a Designer

  • E-Ticket
  • Group Tour
  • 2 hr

While learning new skills, you will make your own very special piece(s) of jewellery to bring back home with you from your Peak District Experience. Your special pieces will be inspired by your imagination and the unique perspective of creating something new in a workspace that has been the home of beautiful creations for two centuries. Our workshop is located in a historic textiles mill in England's Peak District. While textiles are no longer being produced at the mill, you can hear the waterfall and see the remains of the mill pond which fed the water wheel that powered the mill. Most of the buildings have been preserved and remain much the same as they were from its inception at the end of the 18th century.
