Vanilla Ink The Smiddy
The Smiddy was converted into a blacksmiths in 1902 and is a part of Banff’s rich history. It has been restored as part of the Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme to become a centre of excellence for silversmithing and jewellery.
The Smiddy is now our second social enterprise jewellery school in Scotland. Our lovely and fully kitted Smiddy workshop was established to provide more opportunities for people to learn jewellery making and silversmithing. We are very proud to continue to support and encourage local craft, heritage and skills in the beautiful town of Banff.
For Doors Open Days, Vanilla Ink The Smiddy is delighted to welcome visitors to come along and look around the workshop, find out how we operate and the experiences that we can offer; you may even get a peek into some working practices.
