Fachwerk and other architecture in Hahndorf @ Ophelia's Cottage

There are some excellent examples of Fachwerk construction in Hahndorf.

Sharon from HWT will be taking guests to various locations in the village to visit those sites. Included is a 30 minute talk and demonstration.

The 10.30am tour will include a demonstration of hand hewing lumber using traditional woodworking tools. The 2.00pm tour will show cutting a mortise and tenon joint.

This part of the tour will be undertaken by Mr Chris Hein, who has an Advanced Masters degree in Archaeological Science from ANU, and whose experimental archaeology thesis project (a Fachwerk frame) will be displayed. Refreshment provided.
