From the 24th to the 26th of May 2019, for the first time a blacksmith's meeting takes place at the Federseemuseum Bad Buchau in Southern Germany, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.
In a combination of showcase museum with a modern staged permanent exhibition and archaeological open-air area, the Federseemuseum shows the history of the 15,000-year settlement of the Federsee region from the Ice Age to the Iron Age. The authentically reconstructed houses in the open-air area provide a lively venue for history mediation and an ideal stage with a fantastic backdrop for educational activities and demonstrations of prehistoric craftsmanship. Here one experiments, manufactures, shows and explains - and all in front of "running audience". A lively forum to exchange with colleagues and the visitors.
- Friday, May 24: arrival day, construction and in the evening a cozy, internal get-together.
- On Saturday, 25.06. we set up a blacksmith competition for all participants. It is for everyone, to make a piece to the motto "100 years Federseemuseum". The most imaginative and best copy will be awarded on Sunday. An interesting suggestion for this is certainly also a look into the cabinet exhibition in the museum for the anniversary "100 years Federseemuseum".
- On Saturday evening, after a sweaty day, there is the well-deserved "celebration" evening. Four bands play at the open-air concert. For the actors of the blacksmith meeting the entrance is free.
- On Sunday, 26.05. we will have the award ceremony and at 16.00 clock the cleaning and packing up starts.
Important to know: An air hammer is provided by the company Angele, coal and gas are provided and a welding place is set up (MAG). Please bring all other required materials (smithy, weather protection, material, food, anvil, tools). Of course, brought along goods may also be sold.
The number of participants is limited, please register at Patrick Geiger, PGeiger@Federseemuseum.de, (+49) 7582 / 8350.
