Discover and watch historical crafts
If you would like to see for yourself how artisans used to work in the past, visit Ambachten van Vroeger (Historical crafts and trades) on 1 and 2 July. You can witness with your own eyes how artisans in the past created the most beautiful items with their hands.
Discover the tricks of the trade
People used to make a lot more themselves than we do nowadays. Basically, anything they needed! People specialised more and more from prehistoric times until the Middle Ages. While the prehistoric hunter used to provide entirely for himself, Middle Age artisans joined forces in guilds and trade associations. And within these organizations, specialists were hired for certain processes. Did you know that making textiles used to involve carders, spinners, weavers, fullers, nappers and inspectors? Each played their own important part in the production of a stretch of fabric. You will see and learn all of this and much more on 1 and 2 July!
