In 2020, Ghent is demonstrating that Van Eyck is still making his mark on the city. Van Eyck’s heritage courses through the city, and generation after generation he continues to inspire new masters.

More than seventy Ghentish creators have agreed to create a product or design inspired by the Ghent Altarpiece. Each and every one of them a passionate artisan who, just like Jan Van Eyck in the fifteenth century, are keeping artisanal mastery alive with the utmost care, knowledge, and patience. 

The Van Eyck creators practice a broad range of crafts, leading to a great diversity of unique products: jewellery, hats, floral arrangements, beer, rugs, shawls, handbags, ceramics, glassware… The variety on offer is tremendous. Their exclusive products will be offered for sale in the council cellar underneath the Belfry.
