Presentation reed cutting and combing

31 Oct 2020

During this presentation you will see the miller at work cutting and combing reed to size. The presentation will take place at the Blokweer Museum Mill.

Did you know that millers also often worked as reed cutters in Kinderdijk? The reed was cut with a reed hook. Subsequently, the dirt and leaves were removed from the reed by combing it out so that it would be bundled clean. During this presentation you can see the miller at work cutting and combing reed to size. The presentation will take place at the Blokweer Museum Mill. Book your online tickets!
