Is it Cold in the winter?
No – with the Squirrel Morso stove going it can get a bit warm in the workshop – even in the coldest winters, so leave your coat on the hooks in the stern thank you.
Does the boat have a toilet?
Yes the boat has a porcelain fully functioning flush toilet in it’s own private bathroom, with hot water, clean towels and fresh flowers (OK the flowers are in the kitchen but the loo is great!)
I’ve never done anything like this before. Will I be able to do it?
Yes. If you can hold a pair of pliers and knock with a hammer you will be able to make your jewellery. There might be some filing, drilling and polishing although you will be closely guided through all of the processes.
Is it really just one day?
Yes we work hard to ensure your jewellery is complete and ready to take home, clean, polished and ready to wear
Can I buy a voucher?
Yes, we sell very popular vouchers for people looking for a unique and thoughtful gift. The voucher will be emailed directly to you as a PDF to print out with the recipient’s name/s on. They are valid for one year from purchase date, and can be redeemed against any silver jewellery making courses on board The Silver Jewellery Boat. Vouchers are only valid once paid for.
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, students are welcome to bring along small(ish) quiet, well behaved dogs who are happy to tuck away in a corner for several hours (it’s a long boat but not very wide!)
Children from around 12 years old enjoy the day if they like crafty type activities and are accompanied by a responsible adult. They all pay the regular fee.
