Cooping weekend > Sun 8 Oct 2017


As part of the key theme Handmade, the Zuiderzee Museum will organize special craft weekends  this season, when each month a whole weekend is devoted to a specific craft. Not only can you see how the craft used to be carried out in the old days – within the Zuiderzee context – but also what applications still exist today. In addition the raw material and, if possible, the way it is obtained and processed is explained.

Cooping weekend

During the cooping weekend, on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 October, there are may things to be done. Take part in the treasure hunt through the entire Outdoor Museum, for example, when various kinds of barrels and tubs as well as their functions, are central. Have a look in the smithy and see how the steel hoops of barrels are made. And to crown it all you can have your picture taken as 'Jan Huigen in the barrel', from the Dutch nursery rhyme, or take part in a round of barrel dancing!
