Would you like to develop your skills in the field of handicraft by establishing new collaborations with people who share the same interests in art and culture?

If the answer is yes, then join the artisan workshops organized in the frame of the MyHandSCraft project!

We are looking for 10 migrants with experience in the field of craftmanship and arts and 5 locals for a round of 13 workshops which will take place between March and May 2020.

The scope of the workshops favors the development and exchange of professional competences, promoting the interaction between participants with different cultural backgrounds through practicing arts and crafts:

Workshops 1-3: Training Package 1

The first WS is dedicated to group building activities to set & create a good working & cooperative atmosphere; the following two workshops will be focusing on an assessment of the participants’ initial skills & knowledge (to be compared with the skills & knowledge at the end of the workshops).  It consists of the sharing of participants’ personal stories to be collected for the development of IO5, the Digital Guidebook for Handcrafters.
