Artisans of Menorca family, has grown again: on Saturday March 1, were delivered at the Menorca Craft Center, the Craftsman and Master Craftsman Cards to those artisans that applied in recent months to the Department of Economics, Environmental and Hunt of the Consell Insular de Menorca, had a positive evaluation. Among them, it has been granted a craftsman who has restored the office of saithe.
On this occasion, the Consell Insular de Menorca, has also proposed to grant three Honorary Master Craftsman Cards, to three shoemakers, who for their careers, have contributed to the consolidation of a product as Menorcan sandal (avarca). This year, there will be an exhibition in the Center dedicated to the history, evolution and expansion thereof.
My contribution this day, well as being present on the spot on behalf of the Association of Artisans Arteme, was to elaborate some details for these Master Craftsmen: from photos of a common tool shoemakers such as tweezers, I made a silver reproduction to scale, to transform the tool into a pin, trying to be as faithful as possible to the model … I think with a satisfactory result! A very original present! I leave you some pictures of the tweezers, the process of making this small jewelry pieces and their final size.
Congratulations to all… and go on!
