In a craft economy, your craft was your birthright and you learned it through long apprenticeship.

I quite like this idea of learning thro’ internship. The ancient Indian way was called the "gurukula" system. You have to live with your master to learn crafts like music, vedas etc. There was no formal method of teaching. It was learning by observation, by doing, by helping the master… It was all by "assimilation". Great thinking to take it forward.
