HOMO FABER

Presented by the Michelangelo Foundation, the exhibition celebrates the results from craft talents collaborating with master artisans across Europe during the first edition of Homo Faber Fellowship, a life-changing programme that facilitates the transmission of skills from one generation to the next

14 to 18 May: 10am – 6pm / 19 May: 10am - 4pm 

Presented by the Michelangelo Foundation, this exhibition celebrates the creative results from craft talents collaborating with master artisans across Europe during the first edition of Homo Faber Fellowship, a life-changing programme which facilitates the transmission of knowledge and skills from one generation to the next.  

Inspired by an Art Deco theme, chosen by supporting partner of the programme Jaeger-LeCoultre, twenty co-creations tell the stories of each duo’s creative journey, and showcase the possibilities which arise when a young vision meets with the experience of a master. The international fellows spent six months in the workshops of their paired master artisans across Europe, following a month-long creative and entrepreneurial masterclass developed and certified by ESSEC Business school and Passa Ao Futuro at Joana Vasconcelos Studio. 

Discover a diverse range of crafts from bicycle building to featherworking, stone sculpture to basketweaving, and see firsthand how innovation and tradition blend to bring to life original objects. Admire a giant dome lamp handcrafted using basketry by a Portuguese duo or a wall mounted headboard decorated with real flowers cast in natural resin created by an Irish duo. Be inspired by the stories behind the co-creations and even get the chance to meet some of the young talents and hear about their experiences in a master’s workshop.  

During the exhibition, you can explore Homo Faber Guide, a digital platform which allows users to discover contemporary craftsmanship worldwide, offering a new way to visit travel destinations. A tailor-made London craft itinerary will reveal the best artisan workshops and craft related experiences across the city. 

The Michelangelo Foundation aims is to make craft professions socially, culturally and financially appealing and viable to the younger generations through its Homo Faber NextGen programmes. The two programmes seek to develop the employability of young artisans and equip them with effective tools for them to develop thriving workshops in the future and continue transmission from one generation to the next
