Royal Selangor Pewter Crafting Experience
- Half Day
Meet the driver at 09:00 in the hotel lobby for a transfer to the Royal Selangor. In 1885, a young pewter smith named Yong Koon arrived in Malaya from the Chinese port of Shantou. He was armed with little more than a set of tools but determined to succeed. Today, Yong Koon's humble enterprise is Royal Selangor, the world's foremost name in quality pewter.

Start the tour of the gallery and learn about the past in which tin was a prized commodity, the triumphs and challenges of Yong Koon and his family. The Gallery displays Yong Koon’s tools, his personal effects and pewter artefacts.

Following the gallery tour, be acquainted with the processes of the craft. Try out hammering small uniformly sized dimples on a cylindrical pewter sheet, the same process used by Royal Selangor artisans to create the classic hammered finish. Continue to the Royal Selangor factory floor where real-time manufacturing takes place.

From here get hands-on at a 1-hour pewter workshop. (available for over 15-year olds only. Alternatively request the 30 min Hard Knock Class available for all ages). Craft a take-home pewter accessory using fundamental pewter crafting processes – casting, polishing and decorating, with options to create something freehand or from existing moulds.

Finish with late morning tea and cakes or an early Lunch at the Royal Selangor Café before returning back to Kuala Lumpur. (L)
