The villages of vanishing professions are not a new idea. What distinguishes our village? In our case, it is a great market for folk and old crafts. We want to show live how craftsmen and handicraft makers used to work together to produce the necessary goods.
Horse carts used to be the basic means of transport in towns and villages. During the event, representatives of many disappearing professions will jointly build a “wasąg”, a simple horse-drawn cart. A carriage-builder, wheelwright, saddler, blacksmith, rope-maker, plaiter-maker – this is how many craftsmen are needed to create a cart to which horses can be harnessed. Finally, our cart will go on a tour of the festival grounds.
This cooperation will be accompanied by demonstrations of other traditional professions. You will also be able to meet potters, woodcarvers, stained-glass makers, gilders and representatives of many other crafts, unknown today, to see them at work and perhaps under their supervision test your skills and abilities.
