Mad’in Europe project “Stories of talent by European craftsmen” has been launched as part of the program of the European Commission “European Vocational Skills Week: Discover your Talent”.
Considering its success, we decided to continue this program and to development this section further.
Our objective is to let some selected European professional craftsmen narrate their stories and show their work. We hope these story-telling will stimulate your curiosity and interest for crafts, which are part of our intangible heritage but also a different and more responsible way of buying.
To have your portrait in this section you must be a craftsman member of Mad’in Europe. Please see conditions on the registration page.
Everything happens in the world to end up in a book. Books are a wonderful invention, because they convey thoughts which shape the reader’s imagination and imagery. Through my profession I have the chance to offer to the readers the best possible reading experience. Is it not fascinating?
The traditional printing is returning to a new life today, more and more culturally prepared people require typographical printed products. A new interest has risen first in the U.S. and is spreading rapidly throughout Europe. In the framework of this perspective, young generations have all the potentialities to continue this wonderful job.
The advantage of the young generation is their natural ability with new technologies and social media which can be a big plus to showing their work. Building a jewellery business or a craft business is not easy. Keep learning all the time, to not be afraid of rejections and not live as a failure the fact that thing don’t work instantly.
I don’t wait for the right customer to come along, I get out there to find the right customer. Sometimes I will design conservatively other days my designs may be bold and unpredictable…it doesn’t matter eventually they will find their forever home.
