A really fun and interesting day that more than exceeded my expectations! I learned so much and I'm looking forward to coming back with some friends. It was lovely and cosy on the narrowboat. Although it was a miserable and rainy day, we were warm and snug in the boat with the lovely wood burning fire. Jonathan is a great teacher, very personable and made us all very welcome - thank you!

Really enjoyable. Fascinating. I had a great time and made a lovely bangle - with Jonathan's gentle guidance.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Janette. Lovely to meet you. Well done with your jewellery making and thank you for the thoughts about the new benches!
Had an absolutely brilliant day making a pair of silver earrings (and giving my tester bracelet as a present!) Excellent tuition for a complete novice like myself, the hours flew by. Would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone, was great fun and a fabulous 40th birthday present for me :) Thank you Jonathan (and the 2 ladies I met were lovely too!)
Response from Salt Way Silver:Well done with your making day - We all learned something from your soldering session! Many thanks for your kind words.
Extremely enjoyable day. Given as a birthday present and couldn't have asked for anything better.
Jonathan is very knowledgeable, helpful and easy going.
Would recommend highly.
Loved the rings and bracelet made.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Well done Sheila - you made a good job with the jewellery making and it was a pleasure to meet you all. Thank you for the kind review. And thank you for letting me join in with the picnic!
Really brilliant day! Lovely setting, Jonathan was great, (very patient) tutor and we are so chuffed with our creations. We want to do it again. Thank you so much.

Fantastic day that I couldn't recommend more highly. Great setting and decked out perfectly for the session. Jonathan is extremely friendly knowledgable and guides you through the jewellery making extremely well. I love the jewellery I have made and will be back.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Holly - you organised a great day with friends and family. I admire your determination! Well done
Fantastic day, beautiful scenery with excellent instruction. I've never made any type of jewellery before but I was able to make my fiance's wedding ring in one day!
Response from Salt Way Silver:Hi Laura
Thank you Jonathan. What an absolutely fantastic day. Your teaching skill and patience are perfect! Would recommend to anyone
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Claudia. You did well to complete your silver spinner ring on the day - and we had a good giggle too! The lunch time picnic was a real treat as well.
What a lovely day the four of us had. We all made some lovely wearable jewellery; 3 bangles and one pendant....all very different. Jonathan was a very patient tutor and his wife's cake was delicious. Thank you both.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Lois
I highly recommend a day on the Silver Jewellery Boat. We had a wonderful day and were delighted with the results. Good cake too!
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Lesley
A very pleasant day; informative teaching and I now have a super bangle to wear. Brilliant cake also!
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you Barbara
Having spent an enjoyable day on the Silver Jewellery Boat during the summer with a friend, I returned last Sunday this time with my teenage grandaughter who had admired the stacking rings I had made and was keen to have a go at making real silver jewellery.
We got started straight away making a copper chain and pendant. This helped us to develop our skills and to get used to working with the tools. Jonathons’ calm and positive approach was perfect and set the scene for a really positive learning experience on the cosy narrowboat. As the woodburner glowed in the corner we set to work on our silver designs. We made stacking thumb rings and a bangle.
The day flew by and we are both delighted with our achievements. I highly recommend the Silver Jewellery Boat experience. It is such a gem of a day in a beautiful setting with expert tuiton.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Dear Shelley
This experience was everything we had hoped for - enjoyable, friendly, relaxing and productive. Both my partner and I had a fun time learning to shape, solder and polish our silver rings. The location, the barge and the company were lovely - as were the cups of tea and slices of cake provided. Jonathan was a friendly and patient teacher and we came away having had a thoroughly good time. Will definitely go back for more jewellery making fun.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thank you for your kind words - it was lovely to meet you both. Well done with your jewellery making. You're welcome on board anytime.
What a day, spectular venue, and Jonathan was an excellent teacher with the patients of a saint, fabulous company and of course cake always goes down well. achieved making my partners wedding ring and it's perfect will make the big day even more special.
You won't be disappointed with the day, treat yourself or others but all in all a great time. Many many thanks Jonathan.
Response from Salt Way Silver:Thanks Paul. Was a real privilege to help with your wedding band. Best wishes for the Big Day!
