From basket weaver to mountain pine oil burner

Rare professions show their skills

At the Seefeld Crafts Festival, craftsmen from rare occupational groups give insights into their work

Starring: Basket weavers, saddlers, violin makers, felters' hat makers, blacksmiths, coopers, wainwrights, potters, scissor grinders, sign painters, fabric printers, goldsmiths, notch carvers, sculptors, knife and cutlery makers, goldsmiths, quill embroiderers, hallmarkers, lace makers, wood turners, glass blowers, tanners, carpenters, engravers, mask carvers, fence builders, sheep shearers, and mountain pine oil burners - just to name a few of the dozens of different handicraft types.

For example, the South Tyrolean bakers around the master baker Benjamin Profanter show the way of the rye grain from the field to the oven under the slogan "From grain to bread". The locally produced bread dough is processed into "Breatln, Vinschgerln & Co", baked in a wood-fired oven and, with its enchanting aroma, literally makes the mouths of many visitors water.

Of course, very rare and almost extinct crafts will be on display again, such as monastery work or crafts that used to be cultivated on farms. These include the processing of sheep's wool and flax, the drilling of pine wood for water pipes (there will be a push saw set up), scything, splitting wood for fences and much more.

The numerous craftsmen are looking forward to taking you on a journey into the past, or rather into the practically invisible present, and to enthuse you with their craftsmanship, products and tools.
