Porcelain-maker Games

What was life like for the children of the porcelain makers 100 years ago here in Selb? Did every child have their own bedroom? And what did they do for fun without any electricity or television?

We embark on a tour of discovery through the department called “The Working and Living Conditions of Porcelain Workers in Europe” and explore the everyday work of porcelain makers and the different workstations in the factory. We also get to make some great games from very simple things and see how it is possible to have a lot of fun even without electronic gadgets.
