Born 1987 in central Europe (Germany) as son of teachers, arts have been quite a larger part of my life, though anybody telling me, that this would become my work and dedication someday – I would have declared that person insane , as a child I had awful struggles because of my damaged finger nerves, even playing music Instruments was almost impossible.
Beginning around the age of 16, I began to be active as musician with several instruments in several styles, which became the focus of my life for some years, until I had to give up my big dream of being a full time musician for my whole life – the struggles were too great.
For quite a few years, Flags and Banners were the center of my activities, you will recognize in the postings on this page. However, I had to close this chapter,back in 2016, as making a life by sewing flags turned out to be almost impossible without wrecking my body and personal life, I am thankful for the good memories I have from this time, but the struggles were too great (but this is not lament !)
In the second half of 2016, having been active in the research about bells for more than 10 years, and having worked on the restauration of bells (part time) for some years already, I began my own company : Ars Campana (www.arscampana.com) , we renovate and maintain existing bells, but we also make new bells by request – in 2018, we´re establishing a second workshop/foundry in Germany, plus we are making new bells cast on site at the customer´s place by request.

I am still involved in writing and performing music (just not for bread and butter) and occasionally I am making Flags also – though now for fun : )
Beside my daywork (which is more than just daywork to me) I am also teaching bellringing to interested people, I am the resident bellringer of the Coptic Church in Germany and I am the Prior of the Children of Quasimodo, a group of bellringers and bell researchers.
Thanks for reading, hope to hear from you someday!
Yours Julian J.Hoffmann

A very good morning from my ``workshop`` (my living room, as I don´t have a seperate room for the sewing machine) !

It feels so odd to be working on fabrics again, in the last week I prepared the parts for the Royal Navy Flag for Edgar & simultanously I re-sized the pieces for the Cross Flag (Oldenburger Land). It felt so familiar, but weird in the same moment....

Before some of you think I will resume my previous work - No ! It is fine to make Flags again, and I will occasionally do so, but I choke any ideas of returning to professional/full time flagmaking, for some reasons - one of them is the frustration, that many of my artist colleagues from many other branches will know : people like your work and occasionally maybe will praise it, but if you tell them the costs, they will shake their heads.

And somehow, this also works out in my new department of crafts, people want beautiful things, but they are not really willing to accept the costs that come with it - most Flagmakers (for sewn Flags) are producing in bulks, and many of them abroad while charging local prices ( I wonder why no bellfoundry re-located to Asia yet..) .

More news later !

Dear friends and watchers,

after roughly 2 years of not producing Flags, I am returning to Flagmaking !
This will be an exception somehow, but who knows :

A friend of mine asked me for the UK Naval Ensign - ironically it is the same Flag I had in mind to produce for myself ^^ I will make this one for him now, maybe I will make another one later on. Datas : 4x8 feet (or 120x240cm), cotton fabric, with equipment to fly on a Flagpole (my colleague isn´t living in the UK and not intending to use it on sea either, so there´s nothing that could barr him from flying).

In the same moment, I began to renovate the Cross Flag - the first Flag I ever made! I made it in 2003 or 2004 with Grandma, after recieving an original Flag from the old Lighthouse of Wangerooge Island in 2002 (Mom had organized it), the Flag was too damaged to be flown daily, so we made a replica in cotton fabric. This one, however, was too strong for the mast, so apart from some ceremonial flying days, it had been in my storage most of it´s life.
Later, my strong desire for perfection rose from it´s tomb, and I was unhappy with my production (as I said : it´s my first production)....I considered it again and again, torn between keeping it in original status and the wish to see it flying for some special days...
In 2011, I had the idea to place it on Daddy´s Casket for the funeral service, as this place was so dear to him all over his life - I didn´t do it, as I wasn´t certain whether my family would approve it....
To finish the report : I decided to renovate the Flag, it will be made smaller (120x240 instead of 145 by 290), and it will also get a new head tape, which shall bear an inscription, comemorating the story of the Flag and my Grandma.

Be well,
Julian
You can't start a fire without a spark
Just a short hello from me - after a long-standing inactivity!

This photo was made during a bronze caster´s gathering in the North of Germany, which took place last weekend (plus attached days of castings there), which gave my life a quite new direction : I will become the residing bronze caster of the venue, which is an open air museum for the bronze era - the time in which casting was "invented", the initial spark for all later techniques of casting. As some of you know, I´ve been working in art foundries for quite a bit of time, and though some things caused me never to finish a formal education in this crafts : I never got it out of my mind.

Before I heared about them looking for a new founder, I wasn´t in contact to the topic of bronze age, now it´s quite fascinating me (but you will not get the medieval era and the arts of lord of the rings out of my mind, be sure)!
With quite simple tools and technigues, they made quite beautiful things - it´s amazing :)
