Examples of the 8 Impact Areas in Action
Manufacto by the Fondation Hermès
Manufacto is a project created by the Fondation Hermes teaching to young kids the work of a craftsperson, to discover the skills of leather craft, leather upholstery and carpentry. This is done through a twelve hours course (divided in 6 sessions) in a volunteer educational establishment where a craftsperson, together with an educator, takes the kid into its word and makes them create their own objects.
The project started in France in 2016 and then it expanded to some other European cities. From 2021 Manufacto also went digital and started creating and sharing video tutorials (manufact’home) via Youtube. This broadened the project size, giving a wider and easiest access to everyone. Also there, viewers are invited to create their own contemporary objects at home through this engaging introduction to artisan skills. Through this experience kids are able to discover skills that are not always part of their educational path, and that sometimes can lead to their future career path and a higher boost in their confidence.
