Oma Wolletje

Wool and wisdom of Oma Wolletje

Oma Wolletje travels back in time to the year 1514. An eventful time of war, strife and hardship.

This family of spinnners is led by matriarch Oma Wolletje. Together with her children and grandchildren they spin, knit and weave their path through life. To provide for her family she sells her wool to whomever needs it. Wool hoods, ponchos, shawls and caps together with (animal friendly) felted sheepskins and shawls.

She also likes to share her wisdom with whomever will listen; whether it is of her trade or on life in general.

Join them at the campfire. Learn about the life of over five centuries ago… and maybe, just maybe you can try an authentic medieval meal.

Clan MacBran Keltfest 2019

Clan MacBran

The Scottish encampment of Clan MacBran

We are Clan MacBran. We are a group of re-enactors who have chosen the period of the Jacobites in 1745-1746 as their period to re-enact. Our camp aims to portrait a group of Jacobites and their daily activities, such as:

Preparing food, various crafts; basket weaving, woodcrafts, working iron, net knotting, knitting, washing, creating clothing, band weaving, soap making and churning butter. Weapons and their techniques. Demonstrations of the clothing like the Great kilt (for gents) and the Arisaid (for lasses) and the positioning and building of the tents and encampment.
