Gwatin honours new artisans

10 November 2005 | Kollig
\nTHE Guild of Woodwork and Allied Trades and Industries of Namibia (Gwatin), established in 1958, is one of the oldest guilds in Namibia.
\nJust recently another reason to get together was the artisan exam conducted on 15 October in Windhoek.
\nGwatin was very pleased that three different companies signed up five apprentices in their fourth year for the 2005 artisan exams.
\nThe exams were successfully conducted, even though it was a tough day for all.
\nCongratulations to the three apprentices and now new artisans, Thor-sten Böhme from H. Jensen Bau- und Möbel-tischlerei, Denver Mouton from Tischlerei Kintscher and Klaus Rapmund from Tischlerei Bauer cc on their success and newly achieved qualifications.
\nTheir achievements were celebrated in the Bauernstube Family Restaurant in Windhoek, along with a prize-giving. Thorsten succeeded with the highest marks and received the Gwatin Best Artisan Award and the Spannagel, sponsored and handed over by K.R. Sievers.
\nThe success of such an event depends to a large extent on the contributions of sponsors, without whom the prestigious examinations and evening would not have been possible. Gwatin would like to express their honest appreciation to the following sponsors: West Coast Joinery Suppliers, Swakopmund; WB Hardware and Building Supplies (Pty) Ltd, Swakopmund; Hüster A. Machine Tools and Windhoek Tool Centre, both from Windhoek.
\nFurthermore gratitude is expressed to all involved in teaching the ap-prentices, drawing up the exam pa-pers, the examiners for their time and patience during the exams, as well as all who were involved in making the artisan dinner such a success.\n
