This coming spring you can enjoy the most exceptional objects made by human hands, from the Middle Ages to the present day, in the museum’s spacious Bodon galleries: from a 16th-century suit of armour to the handmade fashion of Iris van Herpen, from ‘Clay Furniture’ by designer Maarten Baas to refined needlepoint lace and examples of domestic embroidery. Short videos provide insight into the traditional techniques used to produce these objects.][As part of the exhibition, craftspeople will continuously be on hand to demonstrate their skills and passion. Be amazed by a whole array of techniques, such as papermaking, weaving, goldsmithing or a demonstration of violin making. Hand Made shows what crafts were, are and can be.
