With the development of web 2.0 and modern technology, more businesses are relying solely on digital elements to go about their day-to-day and complete work tasks. Human craftsmanship and traditional materials are becoming increasingly rare in today’s world, as modern technologies seem to overshadow them.
If you look back 50 years ago, many jobs required humans to complete tasks. For example, production lines in factories or hand painting artwork for publishing materials. Craftsmanship was the norm and, although technology was rapidly advancing, no one realised the effects it would have. They certainly wouldn’t have predicted 3D printers or even everyday things that we think nothing of, like online banking.
Considering the creative industry is one of the fastest growing parts of the UK economy; the amount of work that is completed on computer screens is staggering. Unfortunately – what seems to be a dying art – creative craftsmanship is a largely underappreciated skill, highlighting the true importance in keeping it alive.
Arts and crafts should be encouraged more amongst young people and students. Hand-making a decoration takes a keen eye for detail and a creative streak. Making a striking Christmas wreath doesn’t mean throwing on every coloured ribbon, glitter or pine cone.
At our workshops, our hand-selected team are all extremely creative. We hand-craft all of our stunning decorations, including beautiful wreaths, garlands and decorations. From baubles, ribbons and fairy lights to berries, pine cones and cinnamon sticks – we’ve got it all!
At Lumiere, we recognise the importance of high quality products and service. We are very proud of the products we create for clients and take a lot of time and effort to ensure they exceed expectations. Large amounts of care and dedication go into our work, which is something we pride ourselves on.
There is certainly something very special and authentic about hand making decorations that makes us so passionate about what we create and human craftsmanship will continue to blossom at Lumiere. For more information on the products and services we provide, please click here.
