Saving disappearing professions
Many Wroclaw craftspersons practice professions that are hardly remembered by anyone. The gunsmith repairs guns, the bookbinder specialises in the manual binding of various publications and the ornamentation of bookbindings, and the master of framing and gilding makes painting frames and gilts. The profession is often handed down from generation to generation, but can also be learned at courses or even during studies. The School of Artistic Crafts and Management at Pl. Św. Macieja in Wroclaw is the only school in Poland offering courses to future craft artists in jewellery, the valuation of precious stones and the conservation of works of art.
