Design im Kontext der Handwerksausbildung
Many of the traditional crafts are directly related to design. The manufactured products not only meet functional requirements, but are also sometimes regarded as works of art. Craft businesses manufacture products and offer services that sell better on the basis of a good design or can be marketed in the first place as a result.
An understanding of design and knowledge of how processes work in order to be able to develop new ideas with the user in focus are, in addition to manual skills, necessary competencies to be successful as a craftsman in the industry. The acquisition of design and design skills is possible in schools, universities and technical colleges in a wide variety of forms.
This work presents an analysis of design and composition skills in the context of crafts. Craftsmen were asked in the form of a personal survey and an online survey how they have acquired or are acquiring design and design skills as craftsmen, which skills they feel are necessary in their craft and in which areas there is a desire to improve these skills.
Based on this survey, possibilities are shown of how design know-how supports the trade. This work is intended to show the importance of design and composition skills in connection with craftsmanship and to create awareness of the importance of these skills.
The aim of the work is to inform people who are involved in (craft) training or for people who want to continue their education after their training about the possibilities and their advantages.
