In 2012, Vanilla Ink opened it's doors in Dundee, Scotland. 16 jewellers passed through the workshop and took part on the Vanilla Ink programme. They had access to a 24 hour workshop, monthly professional development classes with industry experts and one to one mentoring with successful designers for 1 year. Vanilla Ink closed its doors in Dundee in January 2015 and travelled to Glasgow where we have now established a brand new workshop in MAKLab Charing Cross. The Vanilla Ink programme is back and is running from it's Glasgow studio. In 2016 we altered the programme and ran it for 6 months instead of 1 year and welcomed 7 jewellers all at different stages of their careers from across Scotland and they submerged themselves in the programme and you can read about their experience here. Below are the Inkers that have taken part in the programme since we began, click on their profiles to read more about them.

The Vanilla Ink programme will run again in March 2018, if you are interested in becoming an Inker please fill out the form on this page.
