The Malta Crafts Foundation along with the Registrar of Crafts within the Commerce Department and the Malta Intellectual Property addressed students at the MCAST Institute of Creative Arts to bring them up to speed with the services they offer and which they could benefit from.

In particular, the Malta Crafts Foundation highlighted the opportunities for work placements, job shadowing, and volunteering with local artisans, as well as opportunities to focus their academic projects on different aspects of local craft in order to bring about innovation in the sector.

The students were also briefed about the annual awards organised by the Malta Crafts Foundation, ‘Premju Ġieħ l-Artiġjanat Malti’, especially those categories they would be eligible to participate in, whether with a product or collaborative proposal, or simply to recognise their efforts in learning a craft as Student Maker of the Year.
