Dundee-based initiative to promote innovation in jewellery design.

Vanilla Ink, a jewellery facility focused on supporting innovation and collaboration in the Scottish jewellery industry, has opened its first studio in Dundee.

The space is housed within the creative hub of WASPS, a vibrant arts complex in the industrial quarter of the city.


Kate Pickering, founder of Vanilla Ink, said: “We promote a rich and diverse range of jewellers and jewellery.

“We extend our resources to open up craft to the wider audience by hosting a varied programme of jewellery classes for all levels, internships and apprentices.”

Vanilla Ink will also open its studios allowing members of the public to browse the space as well as work by jewellery graduates from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Designʼs who have been working in the studios for the past month on their latest collections.

Vanilla Ink will host an official opening party on July 4th with Emma Walker, chief executive of Craft Scotland, on hand to show guests around the space.
