Pot throwing demonstration
Everything made behind the potter’s wheel in the past was made by hand and with human power. Electrical power? No way! Kicking the flywheel until the potter’s wheel was turning fast enough. This meant an enormous assault on the potter’s kneecaps. There was nothing they could do about it, it was their livelihood; they just continued until their knees broke down. Nowadays, potters have a noiselessly fully automatic turning wheel. The technique is still exactly the same.
Every month, there is a pottery demonstration at the Tiendschuur. Here, you can watch this centuries-old miracle according to traditional methods with your own eyes. The pottery demonstration continues from 14:00 – 17:00.
The next pottery demonstration is on Sunday 30 December.
