Maya Soele® was invited to the CRAFT festival at the Lokomotivværksted in Copenhagen from January 24th to 26th, 2024.

It was the first of its kind, so we were very excited about what it entailed.

Poul Nyrup Rasmussen opened the festival as the chairman of EuroSkills.

Following that, one exciting presentation followed another.

In the "Battle for Good Craftsmanship," three trades competed with Önder Yazar from Nybyggerne as the judge. They were all very skilled, and Gry Astrup Hansen convincingly took the victory, winning the Maya Soele® Mason.

At the booth, we had many visitors - A LOT of them!
Especially young people who were apprentices in the trades.
As I told them all, the figures from Maya Soele® are made for them, so I wanted to hear their feedback.

I was truly touched by all the positive responses, and what I heard again and again was: "I'd really like to have that figure when I complete my apprenticeship."

So, the feedback couldn't be better!

It was a fantastic festival, and it was wonderful to be a part of celebrating the proud craftsmanship.
