The harbour’s Jack of all trades
Voluntary contributions come in all shapes and sizes – it doesn’t matter to us whether you want to demonstrate a handicraft or if you are much better at giving visitors a great experience by spinning an old Sea Dog’s yarn. Maybe you are an experienced seaman, fisherman or offshore worker, so you could add your own personal touch to our exhibitions for those groups who want a guided tour?
Would you like to be the harbour’s “Jack of all trades”? Just like the Danish Jack of all trades ‘Bonderøven’ Frank Erichsen, we share the joy of old-fashioned handicrafts and traditions. Here at the museum, we practise maritime handicrafts: forging, net making, cutting timber with the reciprocating saw and tinkering with old engines. Meet our other fantastic volunteers, and share in the manual work and company. You don’t need to have any qualifications or knowledge of the craft – as long as you are interested and have the enthusiasm and willingness to learn and teach others.
We also seek volunteers for events, guided tours, painting projects in the Open Air site and other tasks. Please get in touch if you are interested.
If you are interested in learning more about the opportunities for volunteers, please contact our volunteer coordinator Richard Bøllund by email at email@example.com.
