Friday, 27 November 2015 at 17.32 hours
This week in 'Samen in Beeld' things you always wanted to know about Dutch wooden shoes and rich fantasies from the locals in Uithuizen about what is just a handfull of rusty old iron at first glance.
Father and son van der Meulen from Eenrum run a workshop for typical Dutch foodwear, known as 'wooden shoes'. They are very eager to tell us about their markmansship and offer us a tour around their work place.
In 'Op Beun' the early morning fog is steadily clearing away, the locals from Uithuizen are trying to guess what this antique object is and are getting closer to the truth. It seems to be a piece of scrap metal at first but turns out to be a most ingenious structure.
