Jonathan provided an excellent introduction into the basics of silversmithing - with the guide of an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher, I was able to make a beautiful silver ring. Thank you for a brilliant experience, one that is enough to inspire anyone (even my partner, who didn't attend, who has arrived home with just about everything we need to set up a silversmithing workbench!). Highly recommended course :)
Oh my word, this course and Jonathan are amazing. Not only did I make a couple of beautiful rings, I also learnt skills that I can carry on for future jewellery making projects. I would 100% reccomend the jewellery boat to absolutely anyone and I'll definitely be booking more courses!
Just spent a beautiful day making my lovely Bracelet. The location was lovely and strolling past the wildflowers to the boat was dreamy. The trickling water with the sun glinting off the wavelets was very beautiful and serene. John himself is a natural teacher, patient, good-humoured and charming. I would highly recommend this enjoyable and creative class. Did I mention there was cake too? Perfection!
Spent a lovly sunny day on the boat today using pmc to make a beautiful charm to add to an existing charm braclet I had commisioned from the website a few years ago, its a ' pea in the pod' unspired charm. Great day, I learnt lots of new skills and have a well finished product to go home with. Thanks again10/10
This is a terrific course. I went with my daughter and we learned how to work with copper wire (so that we could gain confidence with the tools) and then silver wire to make our first ring. This was followed by making a silver band ring. Jonathan is an excellent teacher and host; providing excellent tuition (and lovely cake too!). To make the day even more memorable, the setting is idyllic too.
Wow what can I say but recommend this to everyone. I did the ring making course with my daughter as a birthday treat. It was perfect from start to finish. Learning to work with wire initially. Soldering, polishing, filing, measuring all wonderfully explained and demonstrated. Fabulous location, delicious cake and refreshments and ending up with a beautiful ring. A blissfully relaxing day .... Thank you Jonathan X
Had a truly amazing day in this course. Everything was so calm, hands on and fun. Jonathan, who run the day, could not do enough to help and make it a lovely experience. I have come away with lots of skills and two fabulous rings!! Thank you :)
Three of us booked on to the course with different skill levels and we all enjoyed learning how to make a silver ring. We practiced cutting and soldering, we had help with polishing. The atmosphere on the boat was relaxed and we all felt encouraged to give it a go. There was even homemade cake! I have recommended the course to friends of mine - some are going to make their wedding rings. I would like to return to make a bangle next time. Thanks!
