Wood carving, turning, lace making

Craftsmanship from a different century

Horses, cows, sheep - do you know how the typical Ore Mountains' wooden figurines are made? They are carved out of a wooden ring. This technique is called wood turning. Like wood shaving tree production, this is a special method of woodworking that only exists in the Ore Mountains. A variety of trades have blossomed here around the mining industry, which are still practised with impressive craftsmanship today. Whether it's watchmakers, lace trimmers and makers, glove maker or organ builder: The Ore Mountains are hosts to true masters of their craft, whose knowledge has been passed down over centuries within small family businesses. Today they are happy to share it - with you!
