A bursary has been awarded for the first time in Flanders to promote the passing on of craftsmanship as part of a master-apprentice project. Daisy Verheyden was selected for this unique project by gold/silversmith Patrick Storme, who over an eighteen month period will pass on his chiselling knowledge and skills, a metalwork technique that has been used from time immemorial.
“I consider this project as an opportunity to give myself time. Time to learn new skills and to look at my work from a different angle. Being a creative entrepreneur you run the risk of repeating yourself or getting stuck and being restricted by familiarity. Learning a completely new technique will help you develop in your chosen field.”
