One day silver jewellery making course for beginners.
As popular as ever – even without the boat! Groups or individuals enjoy a stimulating day of jewellery-making in our new comfortable Home Studio and some very nice cake!.
The focus is on a really relaxed day out with complementary refreshments offered. We start with some basic copper wire work to get you settled in. Skills are developed throughout the day and later you will walk away with silver jewellery that you have made yourself!

A fantastic, fun, educational, creative and rewarding day for our little family. Thanks Jonathan - for our 10 year old boy and both parents to come away with unique treasures that we designed and executed from scratch, is a testament to your skill as a teacher!
What a fantastic "Mother & Daughter's" day!
Jonathan was so patient and helpful, and the piece of jewellery surpassed my expectations, and the cake was delish!
Response from Salt Way Silver:It was my pleasure - and yes, the cake is pretty good! I'm glad that you are happy with your silver jewellery. Well done!
Thoroughly enjoyable day! Jonathan is an excellent, patient tutor. Will be back!!
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Ruth - I'm glad you enjoyed your day out with your daughter - well done with your bangles!
Had a fabulous creative day with Jonathan, brilliant instruction, fabulous tea, cake, lime and soda too! Made a pretty copper wire key ring and a beautiful silver closed bracelet. I'm sure I'll be back for more.
Thank you very much.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Beverley, for your kind words - and for choosing Salt Way Silver. It was a great day and a treat to meet you and your family. You are always welcome back.
I have had a great day at Salt Way Silver. Jonathan was a fantastic instructor and answered all of my questions. I enjoyed the cake and was very pleased with the bangle I have made. Thank you very much!
Response from Salt Way Silver:Lovely to meet you and your mum. It was good fun and your questions kept me on my toes. Good luck with all of your future adventures and well done with your silver jewellery making.
Thanks to the pandemic, it was 18months from receiving the Silver Jewellery Making class as a birthday gift, and actually doing it! Throughout that time Jonathan was very communicative and I'm so glad that I eventually got to do it.
Jonathan paced the day well and gave us really clear instruction, and lots of individual attention. I was absolutely thrilled with the result and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
I highly recommend you do it - and you also get cake!
Response from Salt Way Silver:Lovely to meet you at last! And thank you for being so patient. It was a great day and your pendant is stunning - so well done with the design.
We all had a very lovely day. It was very enjoyable to learn some new jewellery skills. As four beginners we were expertly guided in a safe and fun environment. The pieces we created are stunning and the level of detail we were able to achieve was amazing.
Would absolutely recommend!
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you for your kind words. It was lovely to meet you and help you with your jewellery making. Impressive determination from you Tamsin!
Fantastic day creating our own key rings and earrings. We were total beginners but learnt so much under Jonathan's expert tuition. A great and patient teacher!
Highly recommended course.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Heather and Chloe - Lovely to meet you and well done with sticking to your chosen designs!
Had a wonderful day at Salt Way Silver. Having had no experience at jewellery making, we left with beautiful rings that will hold a very special in my heart and jewellery box forever!
Response from Salt Way Silver:Hey Carla! Some great ideas today and some very interesting questions! You did well and it was a fun day teaching you both.
A completely inspirational day! So many tricks of the trade learnt. I definitely will be following up with experimenting myself with jewellery making.
Thank you Jonathan!
Response from Salt Way Silver:Well done with your silver jewellery making and thank you for your kind words. It was a good, fun day and I enjoyed helping you with your silver jewellery.
Absolutely brilliant day. Nothing was too much trouble, even with my difficult planet design. I'm so happy with the finished product, thank you. 10/ 10 would recommend!
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Alex - and well done for sticking with your design idea - it worked out well!
Amazing day! This was a birthday gift and I've always wanted to have a go at making jewellery.
We learned different skills making a keyring first then after lunch, made a piece of silver jewellery. I chose a ring with a textured surface and I am so happy with how it turned out!
Jonathan is a great teacher and it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere, would love to do it again! (the cake was delicious too!)
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Sarah and lovely to meet you both. It was a good day and so was the cake! I'm so pleased that you are happy with your silver jewellery.
Lovely day from start to finish. Plenty of tea and cake, and great help and advice in a relaxed informal setting. Cannot express how quickly the time flies and you have a lovely piece of jewellery to take home. Give it a try and you will enjoy it.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Gillian - it was lovely to meet you both, and to help you with your silver jewellery designs.
We have had a brilliant day. There is something so rewarding in being able to finish and look down at the ring on your finger and say "I made that". Have learned new skills, got a new ring, but most of all it was just fun.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Well done Dave and thank you for the kind words. I've added your reef knot ring design to my list of favourite projects, so thank you for that too!
Very enjoyable and educational day. Would thoroughly recommend.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Well done Zoe. I'm very pleased that you enjoyed your jewellery making, and time you spent away from other concerns!
Lovely day thank you. Jonathan is an excellent teacher with lots of knowledge.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Lisa
Brilliant day. I had great fun designing and creating a piece of jewellery I can keep forever. I highly recommend this for a group of friends who are complete beginners or experienced. I can't wait to go again. Jonathan is so patient and with a great sense of humour.

Well, what a wonderful experience.
Having no "crafting" ability I was thrilled to produce a ring that I will actually wear.
Jonathan was a great host and teacher. Relaxed and comfortable setup with lovely cake!

Highly recommended, super enjoyable and very informative silver jewellery making course! Jonathan is a fantastic tutor - patient, encouraging and knowledgeable. Perfect for a mum and daughter day or any occasion to meet up and have fun. You'll come out with lovely pieces that you've made too so it's an all round winner.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Katie and Sally. Lovely to meet you and help you with your creative ideas. I very glad that you both enjoyed your Silver Jewellery making day.
Myself and two friends have had a very interesting and productive day at Salt Way Silver. Jonathan is very calm and a very good tutor. It's been very relaxed, extremely useful and it's great to be able to wear a piece of jewellery made yourself. Amazing first time working with silver.
