About the event

Exhibition of Askardamykti Student Projects and Two Days of Events entitled

"Modern Craftsmen"

In Askardamyktis we know that in learning and art you participate for life and that the worker, the craftsman and the artist are simply manifestations of the same man-creator, the "modern craftsman".

More than 120 Contemporary Craftsmen , who studied at the Askardamyktis School of Arts and Techniques during the academic year 2022-2023 present their works that emerged through the educational process. A sequence of works derived from different arts with a common element of the students' commitment to the acquisition of knowledge and mastery of technical skill, which is transmuted into their creations.

Alongside the exhibition, the school is organizing a two-day event with technical demonstrations, talks and experiential workshops that will help visitors get to know the Askardamyktis team of teachers better.
