These boxes can be used by individual young visitors

The test box allows children to experimentally discover how to work with materials. By feeling the material and experimenting with it, its properties are better discovered. Furthermore, simple techniques can be tried out. The box also serves for inspiration, helping to create new ideas.

Each box contains the necessary materials and a brief instructional manual. You can choose from the following themes:

1. Leather sewing

2. Braiding Techniques

3. Making medieval closure

4. Swallow

5. Embroidery

6. Rebooking
