Satruday,24. October, 10 bis  19 Uhr
Sunday, 25. October, 10 bis 18 Uhr

In the limelight we will find formal work, elegance, splendour of bright colours and delicate surfaces. They demonstrate the proficiency  of the artists who created them and who manage to combine craft and design in perfect symbiosis.  This catwalk march-past of unique collector’s pieces and original production ideas will be curated by art historian Schnuppe von Gwinner, who has spent many years providing an outstanding platform to contemporary craft design – hand-made in Europe – with her agency ‘craft2eu’.
Renowned studios and workshops from Scandinavia, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium and the Netherlands will show exquisite examples of their knowhow, made in classic materials, masterly processed and surprinsingly combined as contemporary interpretations of traditional craftmanship.
