Here are Sinterklaas and Black Peter talking to a brave little girl reciting a poem.
The basket-maker really fascinated my daughter. She spent about 10 minutes watching him weaving and weaving. And look: it was sunny! But quite cold, mind you!
The porcelain-painter wearing a traditional Dutch bonnet! She was very talented and had some beautiful things for sale.
Another craftsman who fascinated my daughter. Again she spent a long time watching him plaiting the seat of an old chair. He was very nice and talkative. And he's wearing traditional wooden clogs!
It was a very nice afternoon but in the end our hands and feet were freezing. I can't imagine how the craftspeople could stand the cold!
