Ammo Jewellery’s ​Madeline Green has a secret that she’d like to share with Siem Reap’s crafty souls and food lovers.

The jeweller is getting together with Goulven Lego, the man called G and owner of Veg G Café, for a weekend of workshops and Middle Eastern food at the garden courtyard they share on Wat Bo Road.

Green has christened the secret spot — it’s not the easiest to find — CRAFT, and to celebrate is launching a new range of jewellery that will only be available there, all made by her team of designers.
