Follow traditional Dutch workshops at the Simonehoeve!
At Simonehoeve Cheese Farm and Clog Factory you can follow typical Dutch workshops! Transform a block of wood into a wooden shoe, make your own candles, farmhouse cheese or ice cream. To round off your day, take a great photo in traditional costume. That will be fun!
For a truly Dutch day out, visit the Simonehoeve in Katwoude, just a stone's throw from Volendam. At this cheese farm and clog factory you can learn the art of old trades such as making farm cheese and clogs. It's great fun for a sociable afternoon with friends or quality time with the whole family.
you ask someone abroad about something typically Dutch, chances are they will come up with 'cheese' and 'clogs'. And they are proud of that at Simonehoeve! In the cheese dairy an instructor in traditional costume will tell you everything about the production process for farmhouse cheese. And the best thing about a workshop is... you can even get to work yourself! Prefer to work with a block of wood? Then learn the tricks of the clog-making trade!
have also come to the right place for a workshop in candle making, macramé, mosaic or ice cream making. Still not quite decided? Then order a voucher for a spring workshop and choose at your leisure what you want to do. Of course, you will also be given a tour of the farm and a hot cup of coffee, tea or lemonade.
very suitable if you want to do something fun with the children. For the little ones, there are custom workshops on painting clogs, making candles, mosaics, macramé and making ice cream. Enjoy!
