Crafty Hands

The journey takes you from the guilds of the Middle Ages to modern-day 3D printing.

Schallaburg Castle has organised a showcase paying homage to all things handcrafted. As a true ode to the power of human hands and their potential for creativity, the exhibition uses unique masterpieces, interactive stations, and exciting events to take you on an excursion through true DIY. Emerging from the gilds of the Middle Ages, all the way to our contemporary 3D technology, Crafty Hands maps out a path of the human hands throughout history, and invites you to experience how important old and new crafts and the skills of our hands are for the modern world. Sharing some forgotten stories about handicraft life, the exhibit is sure to make you want to make something yourself. Let yourselves be inspired!
