One of the first to open special classes for those who wish to learn the art of silver jewelry making in Ubud, Chez Monique on Jalan Dewi Sita lets you master the craft in only a couple of hours. Founded by Balinese silver craftsman Wayan Sunarta, who also oversees the classes and lends a bit of silversmith mentoring to participants, Chez Monique provides a different way to experience your Bali holiday.
Classes usually take four hours, during which you can create your own unique jewelry piece. You may opt to follow a design from their simple and stylish design collection and Wayan’s three staff will help you to accomplish your first mission. You can make a gorgeous ring, exotic bracelet, stunning necklace or earring. Moreover, any crazy design ideas that you might have are met with open arms.
Chez Monique’s showroom is located on Jalan Dewi Sita, while the classes are taught on Wayan’s own family compound on Jalan Sriwedari Taman.
Every class will have at least two expert silversmiths to ensure maximum attention to each student. The cost of the class is 450.000 Rupiah which includes creating only one item per person, per class. This item can weigh no more than 10 grams of silver.
If you’re interested in making additional items, please contact us for more information.For larger designs, additional silver or stones may be required. These will be charged at an extra cost. Very complex designs may also incur an extra cost. Please ask your silversmith at the end of the design stage to check the cost of the selected design.
Classes normally take 2 to 3 hours and run Monday to Saturday. Normal starting times are: 09:30am, 11:00am and 1:30pm. Please call or email to check availability and to confirm the starting time of the class on the selected day. Advanced bookings of at least 24h are required to attend a class.
