Repairing and braiding fishing nets

In the Marken harbour, volunteers demonstrate how nets were repaired and braided in bygone days. Why not try it yourself with one of the craftsmen?

Net-weavers and braiders were usually retired fishermen. Repairing and braiding nets is a time-consuming activity. An active fisherman simply has too little time to do this.
