Unique in the Arts & Crafts
Bornholm is renowned for its large number of skilled craft artists - and rightfully so. They are instrumental in profiling an area devoted to quality and aesthetics where artists are inspired and feel free to pursue their craft, yet also an area with a strong sense of artistic community.
Even so, Bornholm’s craft artists are as widely different as imaginable. They epitomise diversity - not only in terms of temperament, mode of expression and choice of material, but also in their basic working conditions, sources of inspiration and methods of presentation.
Since 2002 Bornholm’s best professional craftsmen have joined together in an association of the applied arts called ACAB.
ACAB is a quality-censored association where each craftsman is judged by an external committee before she or he is accepted as a member.
