Forge

The fire is burning and the blacksmith is hard at work inside Frans Lambooy’s old forge. Come and see how our ‘village blacksmith’ shapes the metal on the anvil using his heavy hammer. Working in the traditional way, he produces nails for the shipyard and tools for the forge and the other traditional crafts carried out at the museum. The sign at the Indonesian Yard and the forged grille in the door at the right-hand end of Westerstraat were also produced by the blacksmith.

 

A few times a year the blacksmith fits iron hoop tyres around the wooden cartwheels made by the wheelwrights.
