A futuristic exhibition
of timeless crafts.

At a time when the question is being asked more than ever about the survival and the evolution of Craftmanship, in the face of the development of new technologies, and especially in view of the advent of 3D printing, De Mains de Maîtres gathers together art craftsmen, creators, designers and digital specialists for a major exhibition: CRAFT 3.0.


The aim is to question various Luxembourg and European players in the fields of arts and crafts and new technologies, in order to glimpse the tremendous interest that there may be in the future to bring together and combine these old and new skills.

Beyond the eternal debate between tradition and progress, it is now clear that digital techniques are not to oppose the gesture, nor to make it disappear, but can be a formidable way of prolonging and even enhancing it!


The aim of the exhibition is to explore the current and future shift of age-old gestures towards a new craft nourished and enriched by digital techniques.


A programme of lectures and workshops is also planned for the duration of the exhibition.

CRAFT 3.0 offers the visitor a didactic journey in three stages:

Space 01

& Tradition

The Cabinet des Savoir-Faire is a real introduction to the subject, reviewing a variety of traditional techniques and offering an incredible sample of the materials still used today by craftsmen in the tradition of age-old gestures.
In the form of an « Objeothèque », this space offers a selection of works, all made specifically by Luxembourg creators, and relayed by interactive terminals that will allow visitors to discover the secrets of their manufacture.

A second station offers, through giant screens, a real « Repertory of Artisanal Gestures », which reviews in images the techniques and know-how of contemporary creators, immersing the visitor in the heart of the workshops and their manufacturing secrets.

Space 03


The final stage of the exhibition, the « Craft-Lab », explores the possible avenues opened up today by digital technologies to the evolution of the Métiers d’Art. Avoiding the quarrel between the old and the new, CRAFT 3.0 reviews, without any value judgement, current experiences in CAD (Computer Aided Design) and additive manufacturing techniques (stereolithography, computer design, laser cutting, etc.). (Stereolithography, computer design, laser cutting, etc.), by bringing together and collaborating with the various players in the applied arts.
