Journeymen

Artisans

A 900-year old German tradition is still alive.

We are traveling apprentice-craftsmen on the "Walz" . We are happy to start a traditional journey to become master craftsmen.

In the Middle Ages (the 14th - the 17th century) it was necessary to go on a 3-year journey to become a qualified Master. There was an ancient rule you had to go 50 kilomrters from your home. This is is still true, but not necessary to become a Master. We do this in our own interest.

When we prepare for the "Walz" we have to wear the "Kluft" (traditional outfit) : trousers, vest, jacket, shirt, and hat every day. Depending on the profession, the colors of the outfit change. Wood workers (carpenters and joiners) wear black. Stone workers (stonemasons and brick layers) wear grey. Metal workers (blacksmiths and goldsmiths) wear blue.We wrap all our clothes in a 80×80 cm wrapping cloth called "Charly". The last part of our outfit is a wooden walking stick called "Stenz" which is made of natural twisted wood which we find by ourselves in the forest.

We journeymen don't make this trip to obtain economic advantages at the places we visit. we just want to get acquainted with the practices of work and way of living of other people in other countries, and thus improve our knowledge about our profession and expand our living experiences.

In this way we travel from city to city, from country to country and work in many places to learn and earn money for our traveling.We learn to stand on our own 2 feets, but we are happy to have some local support.

We decided to come to Japan, because we hear a lot about traditional Japanese wood and stonework. After a short journey around Mt. Fuji we have just stopped in Kamakura at Khaju Art Space to do a project for the local people.

This is crucial especially if they are handling your guests who might have questions to ask as they are driven from or to the airport. Don't be misled by reviews that are just too good to be true or a few bad reviews. The positive note for the creation of cars is of course the increase in the speed and style as to how people travel.

Then come back a few weeks later and do it again until you automatically react, especially after some time has gone by. Warplanes has faithfully captured the sleek design of Cessna 310 in its airplane replicas. Since the beginnings of flight, designers have attempted to deal with the problem of the natural world on human vehicles in sky.

s been made a lot simpler with methods like online meetings and mobile communication. There are a variety of search engines and social networking sites and you can certainly take advantage of them for the promotion of your business into new areas and new geographies. Search engine marketing (SEM) keeps your company's brand image front-and-center, providing current, fresh content and discussion for your customers and clients.

By switching this off you lose a potential area of colour and interest, and you also pose the risk of having the photographer and studio reflected in the screen, which doesn't look very professional. In the past it was just the wealthiest members of society who were able to afford security equipment such as cameras, but these days the prices have come right down and now everyone can benefit. Wired cameras are mounted on frames while wireless cameras can be kept anywhere, hidden from plain sight.
