BASQUE CRAFTS BY DESIGN

DESIGN IN GOOD HANDS

Basquecraft by Design is a space for reflection for artisans and designers who direct their efforts towards the same objective, an intersection of both disciplines to picture and cocreate a new craftwork.

Representatives of the crafts world, designers, decorators, architects and other professionals from Bizkaia, take part in this innovative cooperation initiative to develop and produce new handicraft pieces for later sale.

Various teams of 20 artisans and 20 designers from different fields, explore ways of interdisciplinary collaboration, devise joint projects working closely, and justify the processes carried out also taking into account the environmental respect.

Parallel to this process of creation, three free entry talks followed by a discussion also took place in the multipurpose space of BEAZ Bilbao; these three events are part of the Basquecrafts by Design initiative, which has been organised by the Association for the Promotion of Traditional Crafts of Euskalherria (ARBASO), with the help of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, and other collaborations.

Tradition and innovation, craftsmanship and design together to create new unique pieces full of natural practical beauty.
