Exciting news

Exciting news. Over the summer, I received the label of certified craftsmanship. So, this is what happened… During the month of June 2016, I put together a portfolio of my work and career. It was this portfolio which was sent to the “Ambacht Commissie” (Board for craftsmen). So, after presenting my portfolio and defending my application, I had to await the result. As a result, my application to the Federal Government For Economy of Belgium has been accepted. Naturally, I am proud to have received recognition for certified craftsmanship. Personally, this is an important certification to have, as I am a proud craftsman(woman). I am dedicated and proud that all my jewellery is 100% handmade by myself. In support of the craftsmen, the Federal Government of Economy organizes the Day of the Craftsman. It is a yearly event. Held for the past 15 consecutive years. It brings together the craftsmen and the general public. certifeid craftsmanship certified craftsmanship logo-d_SaskiaShutt certified craftsmanship, handmade certifeid craftsmanship

The Day of the Craftsman

One Sunday a year, craftsmen and women open their workshop doors to the general public. Dag van de Ambachten or Day of the Craftsmen, is a wonderful way to show the public how we work. Furthermore, the public has access to a world they never get to see. What happens behind the closed doors of the workshop… In previous years I have always participated in the Day of the Craftsman. Unfortunately, this year, this event falls on the same weekend as Meesterlijk. Since I had already subscribed to Meesterlijk, I can’t participate in Day of the Craftsman.  I find it disappointing as this event is important for our industry. The craftsman is a dying phenomenon. But with events like this, we are seeing a slow revival. Because it is important to keep our artisan skills and craftsmanship alive. As the art of craftsmanship is hands-on skills. And the public needs to experience this. But, most of all, to inspire the future generation of craftsmen. Saskia Shutt Designs Interested in having a piece of jewellery made.
