Mad’in Europe projectStories 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.
