If you haven’t heard of Vanilla Ink studios, then you should check out a video of the wonder woman behind this award winning unique facility supporting craft, innovation and collaboration, here.
Vanilla Ink studios is a first for Scotland, and what’s more they are based here in Dundee! Supporting up and coming jewellers, VInk offer a friendly, collaborative and an affordable studio environment, expert one to one mentoring, tailored business advice and support, and apparently even endless supplies of tea and biscuits!
Founder, Kate Pickering says, “We think there is a difference between making jewellery and being a jeweller; that the difference between having a dream and making it real is understanding the market and your place in it; and that there is a need for a supportive transition from education to independent success as a maker.”
“That’s why we offer a friendly, collaborative and affordable studio environment, expert mentoring and a year to find your feet.”
And even if you aren’t a jeweller, you can still get involved and win the chance to get your hands on some fab jewellery by the Vanilla Ink designers, simply enter the competition here!
