Here's a chance to create your own pewter masterpiece while you re-live the experience of pewtersmithing in the olden days.

Join Royal Selangor's School of Hard Knocks, a unique pewtersmithing workshop that offers a hands-on experience for visitors interested in trying their hand at pewtersmithing.

The School of Hard Knocks is located within our flagship store at Clarke Quay and is a great place for networking, relaxing and having fun.

Invite your business partners, friends and relatives to an unforgettable experience at our School of Hard Knocks.
With just a few simple tools (hammer, mallet, wooden mould and scraper), you will be guided through the processes of forming, scraping, polishing and packing by our experienced pewtersmith to craft your own pewter dish.

The finished dish, engraved with your initials or a personal message, is yours to keep along with your "apprentice pewtersmith" apron and a personalised certificate to attest to your newfound skills.

The workshop session costs SGD$35 per person and is open to groups up to a maximum size of 30.

You can simply walk in and ask for a session. If the workshop space is available, we would be happy to accommodate you.

Or you can book a session online by e-mailing

It is advisable to book if you want to organise corporate functions or ensure that you have the workshop for the group you want, at the time you want.

Each session can take anything from 20 minutes (if you are a fast worker!) to 45 minutes (if you are a detailed craftsman).

Be creative. Feel the pewter. Hammer out your stress. Do something totally different. Relax and enjoy!

We welcome you to our School of Hard Knocks!
