Trades and crafts
First of all we must mention the Delft Blue Earthenware,
of which the production process according to traditional methods
can be followed at close range.
Secondly the jenever distillation process can be followed
step by step in the Dutch jenever town.
Another possibility is to visit a ship-yard and see examples
of Dutch 17th century shipbuilding.
Furthermore silversmiths, tinsmiths, glassblowers, pastrycooks,
cheese makers and wooden shoe makers will be pleased to show
you their traditional workmanship.
