Vanilla Ink The Smiddy is a Centre of Excellence for Silversmithing & Jewellery. We are Vanilla Ink's second home in Scotland, located on the beautiful Aberdeenshire coast in the historic town of Banff. We are located opposite "The Spotty Bag Shop" in a gorgeous restored blacksmiths workshop.

Our school teaches silversmithing & jewellery skills to everyone, from the professional jeweller to the absolute beginner.

We are a social enterprise and are developing workshops and opportunities for Young People in Aberdeenshire to develop making skills and self-confidence.

We run a membership scheme that grants you access to the workshop and we offer bench rental with access to our fully equipped workshop, tools and equipment for those that want to develop their own practice.

We offer a range of silversmith & jewellery workshops, from Make a Silver Ring sessions to advanced stone setting, from the complete beginner to the professional jeweller. We have classes for all.
