Virtual apprentice


In English ‘virtual apprentice’, is the result of trying to learn an ancient craft in the post-digital era: the apprentice of the virtual space has easier access to materials imported from abroad than to those less than 50 km from home. While the Internet is full of people interested in learning craft techniques, there are locally rooted crafts that find no predecessors, leaving as a result a virtual and pixelated knowledge.
