Workshop (Grade 2 - 6)

Chain, block and bag – bookmaking in the Middle Ages

2. Schulstufe – 6. Schulstufe

Join us on a journey 1,000 years back in time: experience two hours as a medieval monk and find out how books and paper were made in that day and age.

Our exhibition will show you how people first had to invent writing – and why it sometimes took several years to make a single book. You are offered the opportunity to touch and examine many objects such as papyrus, parchment and colours. You will also learn the traditional way to make paper - and test your skills as a book illustrator.
