La Comunidad volverá a convocar ayudas para facilitar a los artesanos su participación en la Muestra de Navidad, que cumple 40 años

La Dirección General de Artesanía mantiene un encuentro con los profesionales del sector para dotar de mayor impulso la feria

La muestra de las pasadas fechas navideñas superó todas las expectativas marcadas por los artesanos, con la afluencia de miles de personas

La Consejería de Economía, Hacienda y Empresa, a través de la Dirección General de Impulso al Comercio, Innovación Empresarial e Industrias y Oficios Artesanales, volverá a convocar este año una ayuda de 140.000 euros para la asistencia de los artesanos a eventos y muestras regionales, entre ellas la de Navidad que cada año se instala en el paseo Alfonso X el Sabio de Murcia.

Así lo expuso el director general, Rafael Gómez, durante un encuentro con artesanos para dotar de mayor impulso dicha muestra, y en el que destacó que la ayuda que se volverá a convocar “propició que en la pasada edición artesanos que no tenían previsto acudir pudieran hacerlo gracias a una ayuda de hasta el 80 por ciento del gasto para su asistencia a esta, de ahí el aumento del número de participantes en la última edición”.

En el marco de esta reunión, que tuvo lugar esta semana, también se analizaron los resultados de la Muestra de Navidad 2023, y se marcaron unas pautas de colaboración dirigidas a mejorar dicho evento, dando así inicio los trabajos destinados a la preparación de la próxima edición, en un año que la muestra cumple los 40 años.

“Queremos contar con ellos y con sus aportaciones, ya que siempre se puede mejorar, y qué mejor manera que hacerlo que con los verdaderos protagonistas de la Muestra de Navidad”, aseguró Gómez. Asimismo, manifestó que los artesanos mostraron en la reunión su satisfacción por el éxito de la última muestra, que “ha superado todas las expectativas que se habían marcado los artesanos, con la afluencia de miles de personas que visitaron la feria y pudieron adquirir productos artesanos de la Región de Murcia”. “Sin duda, uno de los mejores escaparates donde dar a conocer el magnífico trabajo que realizan nuestros artesanos con una gran profesionalidad”, añadió Gómez.

La pasada Muestra de Artesanía reunió a cerca de 100 artesanos que ofrecieron a los visitantes productos tradicionales en las fechas navideñas, así como un amplio abanico de artículos vinculados a numerosos oficios. Del total de artesanos participantes, 82 fueron de la Región de Murcia y el resto de comunidades como, por ejemplo, Andalucía, Comunidad Valenciana, Galicia y Castilla-La Mancha.

d) “Beeswax Candles” Collection by Elena M. Esteban. Beeswax candles are the result of a laborious process that begins with the collection of wax from the honeycombs of bees in the Region of Murcia. With their beautiful golden color and sweet, natural fragrance, they add a touch of charm and elegance to any space, in addition to being aesthetically appealing, they are an environmentally friendly option. This makes them an eco-friendly alternative to synthetic wax or paraffin candles. Beeswax has a higher melting point than paraffin, which means beeswax candles have greater heat resistance and can burn longer without melting or dripping. This ensures longer life and long-lasting enjoyment. In short, beeswax candles are a true artisanal gem that combines beauty, fragrance and quality.

The fair, in addition to the commercial space and direct sale of artisan products, will have areas for demonstrations and workshops, as well as parades and tastings, as highlighted today by the general director of Consumption and Crafts, Sonia Moreno, in the presentation of the program of this edition, an event in which the mayor of Lorca, Fulgencio Gil, and representatives of Feramur were also present.

This artisan meeting will feature the participation of exhibitors from mainly the Region of Murcia and also from the rest of Spain, such as Alicante, Lugo, Almería, Cáceres, Cantabria, Ciudad Real, Gerona, Granada, Málaga, Palencia, Salamanca and Seville.

Among the main craft activities of Feramur 2023 are pottery, ceramics, embroidery, miniatures, costume jewelry and natural cosmetics. In addition, there will be food artisans, such as beekeepers, brewers, pork butchers, butchers, confectioners, canners, pastry chefs, cheese makers and winemakers.

The program has a wide range of activities aimed at the general public and the artisans themselves. Among them, the presentation of the II Design+Craft+Innovation Conference stands out, which will take place in Murcia on September 28, as well as a fashion show with designs by students from the IES Bartolomé Pérez Casas, and another of popular clothing.

During the four days of the fair, various live demonstrations will be held continuously, such as bobbin lace, Roman mosaic making, glass carving and engraving, and candle making. Likewise, the visitor will be able to participate in a daily raffle for a batch of artisan products.

In this environment, it is also planned to create a mural in which Feramur attendees will be able to participate and which will be in charge of the ceramist Martín Lario and the illustrator Eloy González.

The day seeks to create a space for the interaction of professionals, "since the artisan dominates the technique and materials, and the designers dominate the conceptualization of the products", a combination that, in the opinion of the general director of Consumption and Crafts, Sonia Moreno, “it must serve so that both sectors gain in innovation and competitiveness.”

'Craft+Design+Innovation' foresees the participation, among others, of Idoia Cuesta, dedicated to contemporary basketry. This Basque artisan designs decoration products for the main firms in Spain and collaborates with the most famous architects and interior designers in the country.

More than 560 schoolchildren and 110 teachers from the Region of Murcia have participated in the regional phase of the 18th edition of 'Consumópolis', the school contest for responsible consumption, which this year has been held under the slogan 'On the Internet, do you do you believe everything you see?' to educate young people about the importance of responsible use of the Internet.

Thus, this edition has focused on the use that young people make of the Internet and the repercussions that their actions may have on the indiscriminate and uncontrolled use of the Internet. The first part of the contest, as in previous editions, has consisted of an online tour of the city of Consumópolis, where the participants have been solving various educational and playful tests.

The second part has consisted of the design, preparation and presentation of a work on responsible consumption, which has materialized in a video on the responsible use of the Internet in the school, family and social environment.

Schools from Jumilla, Cartagena, Alcantarilla, Abarán, Archena, Murcia, Lorca, Molina de Segura, Alhama de Murcia and Santomera have participated in this edition. Specifically, 113 teams have entered the contest: 31 teams from fifth and sixth grades of Primary (155 students); 47 teams of first and second ESO (235 students); and 35 teams of third and fourth ESO (175 students).

The Murcia Regional Crafts Center hosted this morning the award ceremony for the winners of the 18th edition of 'Consumópolis', in which the General Director of Consumer Affairs and Crafts, Sonia Moreno, participated.

The winners in the regional phase, according to their category, have been the teams 'Los Salchichas', from the Campoamor de Alcantarilla school (fifth and sixth grade); 'Artattackers', from the IES Floridablanca in Murcia (first and second ESO); and 'Los Plumbers', from the IES José Luis Martínez Palomo de Alquerías (Murcia) (third and fourth ESO).

The Consumópolis contest is carried out in collaboration with all the autonomous communities and the General Directorate of Consumption of the Ministry of Consumption. Through this contest it is intended to create responsible consumption habits and solidarity with the environment, while students learn and have fun.

The objective is to make young schoolchildren aware of the importance of responsible consumption and combining it with well-being and quality of life, both for them and for the people around them.

The winning contestants of this first regional phase opt for the national phase, in which they will compete with the winners of the rest of the autonomous communities.
