Handmade in Germany shows hand-made objects, like designed furniture and jewellery, as well as manufactured silverware and porcelain. Together these artworks represent the value and future of premium quality production with a commitment to time and handiwork against the backdrop of the current trend of mass production and globalisation.

This touring exhibition spans several continents and continues for years. It started in Berlin, moved to St. Petersburg (both centres of fine European decorative arts), and tours Asia, America and the Middle East before returning to Europe. The idea of the tour is inspired by the journeyman years which refer to the study period apprentices of German trades went through after completing their apprenticeship. They are similar to the Grand Tour of the European nobility, and some German crafts still follow this tradition today in order to provide journeymen and aspiring master craftsmen with a well-rounded international training.

The exhibition will be complemented with a gourmet evening and guided tours.

This exhibition is supported by the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, German Industry and Commerce Ltd., Rhenus Logistics and German National Tourism Board.<div></div>
