Again, the first Sunday of the month, of the summer season 2014, at the The Hague Antiques and Book Market on the Lange Voorhout, in front of Hotel Des Indes and the Escher museum, Escher In Het Paleis, you will find a guest stall.
Sponsors are the Municipal of The Hague and the company who delivers the booths: Marktbedrijf Post.
They have offered their full and free of charge collaboration to this event.
On Sunday September 7, we proudly present:
De Houtwerkplaats, Den Haag
A simple translation would be:
the Woodworkshop, but I prefer: the Wood Guild
The craftsmen there united, working together, offering courses, also work so beautiful, independent and unique on their own.
Wood is their joint love.
Already for 15 years one can sign up for a course in knowing of, and working with wood.
You will experience the wonder of wood: learning about the material, the different distinguishing features, techniques, restoration, out of the box design, imagining and creating – your thought, your design, your own unique piece.
The Houtwerkplaats Den Haag will be presented on the market by:
Alexander Lienhart – woodturning, train or turned wooden pens
Alexander designs and creates wooden pens, such as fountain pens.
All unique, and also in commission, as you like it.
