Bell-founding like in medieval times

Bell founding like in the Middle Ages. In the context of the “Lebendige Dombauhütte” for the 950th anniversary of the Imad Cathedral in Paderborn, a beehive bell will be moulded and cast on site according to the instructions of Theophilus Presbyter.

The project runs from 23.06. to 27.07.2018 Usually, work is carried out from Tuesday/Wednesday to Sunday at the Abdinghof in Paderborn. The entrance is through the Historical Museum in the Marstall. The moulding process requires quite a bit longer drying times in which I will not necessarily be on site. Exact dates can always be called up in advance on this page or on  Facebook under Events.
