Haandværkerhuset - House of Crafts

Haandværkerhuset (House of Crafts) is a center for crafts and architecture. It offers a cultural, creative environment and it is located in the old half-timbered buildings from 1630.

Every Wednesday the house hosts an open workshop from 10-16. Admittance is free but the workshops are small so it is recommended that you split up into groups of 4-5 people.

History
The building was originally part of Oluf Christensens large merchant's house that stretched from Vesterå to Kattesundet. Today, the house contains workshops with traditional crafts like hand-forged tin, copper smithing, carpentry, and clock making.
