At the 2017 OFPANZ Conference and Trade Displays we had 7 entries into the Apprentice of the Year Award. Each apprentice was tasked to fabricate a messenger bag. They wrote about the fabric that was used to make the satchel, the technique used as well as the challenges they faced when creating it. We want to say Thank you to all of our entries. This year’s Apprentice of the Year went to Jasmine Dheda from Custom Technologies Ltd, in Taupo.
