Megan howley reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"On Saturday I had a wonderful day learning how to make a silver jewellery. On the canal boat we got very creative and Jonathan was an excellent teacher. It was the perfect setting to celebrate my boyfriends birthday (he loved it too). We learnt some basic skills and then went on to making a silver ring to take home. What a beautiful, relaxing day which I’ve recommended to all my friends. Expect plenty of tea and cake and great company. Thank you Jonathan for a great day!"

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Megan for the kind review. It was great to see you all again on the boat and I look forward to hearing about more of your crafting adventures Jonathan"

Holly reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"I received this course as a birthday gift from my Mum. We arrived on the day following the clear instructions and followed the signs to the river. Spotting the picnic table and chairs we knew we were in the right place! Jonathon is an excellent teacher, starting with the basics and building up our skills through the day - with countless cups of tea (and a cake break)! My mum made a silver open bangle and I made a set of stacking rings. We had the most enjoyable day and would certainly love to go back and do it all again! A perfect day! Thank you so much Jonathon."

Kate Mitchell reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"I was given a voucher for a jewellery day with Jonathan for Christmas and finally got around to using it last month. Having never made my own jewellery before I was convinced I'd not be able to make anything much, but Jonathan was brilliant at teaching me the tricks of the trade and I came away with a set of beautiful silver stacking rings and all my trial designs in copper! The day was so much fun, and I can't wait to go back for more! Thanks so much for your help and expertise Jonathan!"

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you for your very kind words Kate. It was a good day and great to see your confidence develop. Good luck with your future jewellery making skills Jonathan"

Shelley Phelan reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"I recently attended a silver jewellery workshop day that my husband bought for my birthday with my friend Betty. What a brilliant day we had. We were both complete beginners and were slightly nervous but with Jonathons' skilful tutoring we were confidently filing, using the blow torch and polishing our jewellery. I made the stacking rings and Betty made earrings. I can not recommend the workshop enough. The setting is beautiful and the calm and relaxing environment was just perfect for learning new skills and being creative. Thank you Jonathan for such a great day."

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Shelley - Lovely to meet you and Betty. Well done with your jewellery making. Look forward to hearing how you get on with your own jewellery tools. Jonathan"

Jeszemma Garratt reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"We have had the best time making each other’s wedding rings. Every last thing was perfect; the location, the tea, the whole experience nwas top notch. Jonathan’s expertise and calmness was a perfect balm in the middle of wedding-planning chaos. Seriously, I would recommend everyone makes their own wedding rings on this boat, you get to spend the day away from wedding madness and be calm and you get to make something with love for the person you love. I cried a little when I saw how much love and care he put into making mine, I will cherish it forever. The one I made for him is pretty amazing too!! We were both slightly nervous as we were complete beginners, but Jonathon made sure we felt supported and comfortable . He filled us both full of confidence and knew when to sit back and when to step in. We are delighted with our rings, they are unique and really high quality, I can not recommend this day enough and we will remember it always."

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Jaszemma I am so pleased that you are happy with your rings and that you enjoyed the day making your wedding rings on the boat. It was great to see you working together and laughing. Thanks also for the tips - I have put them in the long term plan! Best wishes for the big day. I'm sure it will be amazing. Jonathan"

Shoena Jones reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"This was arranged as a 21st present for my granddaughter, Kate, and we had a fabulous day. Jonathan’s instructions led us gradually to being able to create memorable pieces of jewellery. Regular infusions of coffe and cake also helped and the setting finished off a great day. This will definitely go on my present list for other members of my family - that means I can also have a go at another piece."

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Shoena for your kind words Great to meet you and your granddaughter. Well done with the silver jewellery making and you are more than welcome back any time Jonathan"

Craig reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"Had a great day, Jonathan was very welcoming. Marcelle and I both made pendants, I don’t think Marcelle has taken hers off since we got home. The day was so much fun and the time just flew by, it’s safe to say I have a new hobby and the shopping list for tools and equipment was made that evening. We will definitely be returning to make some rings next time. P.s. I don’t write many reviews, service / experience has to be either dreadful or fantastic, congratulations Jonathan you and boat have topped the fantastic list."

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Craig and Marcelle. I'm glad you enjoyed the day and I look forward to hearing more about your developing jewellery making skills. Jonathan"

"An absolutely fabulous day out making silvery jewellery with the very patient and accommodating Jonathan Kettle. Superb and very impressive end products made in silver after a morning practising in copper and yummy carrot cake and tea all in beautiful surroundings on the canal in Droitwich. I would thoroughly recommend this course to everyone. Thanks Jonathan for a lovely day."

Ann Goddard reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"My daughter Hannah and I booked onto the course for Hannah’s birthday and had such a great day. Jonathan is friendly, welcoming and a very patient tutor. The boat is well equipped and comfortable- and Jonathan even moved it to a shadier spot in view of the recent hot spell. We had great fun working with the copper wire and trying out new techniques ready to start on our rings after lunch. We at both really pleased with what we achieved and inspired to try more. A great find and one we would both recommend"

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Annie, it was a good day. Well done to both of you. I hope you both enjoy further jewellery making adventures! Jonathan"

Laura reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"This course was one of the best I have been on (and I am racking up a fair few craft courses now!) Jonathan was a great teacher for the day, and I really can't fault it. By guiding us through the copper wire exercises we were able to confidently give the silver bangle making a go, which have turned out looking very professional. Friends and family have all been impressed when I have shown the final creation off. What I think adds to the fun of this course is the brilliant setting of the canal boat. You can be inspired by nature whilst trying to concentrate on being creative!!"
