EHN – European Handmakers Network

About This Course

Welcome to “EHN – European Handmakers Network”!

This Erasmus + funded project aims to promote handmakers’ self-employment and female entrepreneurship, joining the mission of increasing the employment levels and the economic autonomy of European women.

The project is building up a wide handmakers network by bringing together 5 female handmakers from Italy, Poland, Portugal, and The Netherlands who are offering their long-term professional experience in the sector to those that have just started operating in this practice or to those who want to transform their home craft business into a job.

Join us on our platform and check out the Masterclasses in order to better know the mentors which are going to follow your handmaker progress.

The project is based on the idea that straightforward, interactive and personal relationships between the 5 experienced handmakers and the women who want to be trained brings more added value for the future of female business.

So, no prefixed and general frontal lessons but live, practical and face-to-face interactions!

The project plans to select 5 women handmakers from the following countries: Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, and Portugal that are going to:

  • attend free one-to-one live mentoring sessions (4 hours per selected women) with the female expert coming from their own same country (mentoring available during February and April 2023)
  • to participate at the EHN mentoring convention in Poland In April 2023 with experts of the handmaking sector (full travel and accommodation expenses covered)

Do not waste this opportunity!

Main Goal

The project proposes the creation of a digital platform and a physical event that allows European women handmakers to support each other, network and be mentored by long-experienced female experts of the handcrafting sector in order to increase their skills and turn their hobby into a micro business.

The project aims to create a model of female peer-to-peer, physical and virtual, in which relationships, mutual support and networking are the key words.

Artistic Jewellery – Handmade

It all started with my mother, who years ago started sewing clothes using linen. So I have always been connected to a natural product. Being in touch with natural materials, people who created beautiful designs with an emphasis on naturalness drove me to create something that would blend in with what I was already familiar with. My jewellery is created out of a passion for natural beauty. I started with small things, creating jewellery for myself and friends, and soon my work was appreciated by my family and friends, so I decided to expand my business.
