Royal Selangor Pewter Background

This factory started as only a small shop in 1885. But when the British ruled this tin-rich country, it flourished as the British rulers started supporting the craft.

Here, you will see first hand how pewters are cast, polished, soldered and engraved. If you have the time, you can wait to see how the factory’s in house Selberan’s fine jewellery are made.

Pewter Making Workshop

Think you could do better? The folks at Royal Selangor also offers the ‘School of Hard Knocks’ — a  pewtersmithing workshop if you want to learn the craft.

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 experienced pewtersmith to craft your own pewter dish.

Fee starts at RM60 (~$15.4) per person. Advance bookings required. Email [email protected]
