If you enjoy designing your own jewelry, this workshop is for you. We will design beautiful bracelets, necklaces, rings and other pieces of jewelry from a large selection of pearls, natural stones, crystals, pendants, letters and other decorative material for you. Come with ideas you've always wanted to realize, or just let yourself be inspired by the material. You are welcome to bring your own pendants, pearls, photos or pieces of jewelry with you, which we will then "spruce up" together and turn into a new piece. With great love for and attention to color, detail and words, designer Heike Ritter-Hintz has been designing unique handmade jewelry for the "hintz + töchter" jewelry label for 14 years. The label also produces custom pieces designed to individual customer specifications. The incorporation/inclusion of good wishes, quotes, a motto for life, or the names of one's children ensure that the bijoux become absolute favorites.
1 – 5 June 2020
10:00 – 1:00 pm for kids from ages 11
Please register your children for the Edutainment events when you book your room or by sending an email to our Hospitality Desk firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that you must register your child with the Hospitality Desk one last time and in person, and give Schloss Elmau written permission to look after your child, before the start of the program. For the first unit of the program, the child must be personally handed over to the Kids caregivers by a parent or guardian.
Schloss Elmau is located in a natural preserve and makes every effort to reduce its CO2 foot print to a minimum. For this reason, we heat Schloss Elmau by burning wood waste from the surrounding forests in our 1 MW wood chip power plant. As a backup and to cover peak demand we use our own combined heat and power cogeneration plant (CHP) which is fired by gas and generates 50% of our electricity. Our own hydroelectric power station, which has been in operation for more than 100 years, contributes another 15%.
In addition we have reduced electric power consumption by using LED lamps developed in-house and using software to limit peak demand. We dim halogen ceiling spots – which are still necessary for aesthetic reasons – to just 2% of their possible output. Plastic straws have long been replaced with bamboo straws and plastic bottles with glass bottles. To reduce CO2 emissions by transports, we only use and offer drinking water from our own high quality and mineral rich mountain source.
All our meat and dairy products are produced by farmers in our region. Food waste is disposed of in a biogas plant nearby. Waste glass and waste paper are recycled. Insulation of both hotels, which were build in 2007 and 2015 with local construction companies, exceed the European Energy Conservation (ENEV) Criteria by more than 20%. By 2021 all our cars will be powered by electricity.
