A place where time has stood still and where you can experience an old provincial dyeworks, with the dyers house, garden and stable buildings more or less as they were when the last dyer and his family lived and worked here at the beginning of the 20th century. Farvergrden is the last surviving provincial dyeworks in northern Europe.The last dyer, Johan Petersen, took over the dyeworks from his father in 1905 and continued to ply the old dyers craft until the middle of the 1920s. A craft that had the main purpose, before industrialisation, of dyeing and finishing peoples homemade cloth and yarn. A craft that was about to be made redundant by mass-produced factory goods.As late as 1928, however, people could still bring their textiles here for dyeing just as they had done almost without a break since the 1770s.Thanks to Johan Petersen and his wife Kirstine, the dyeworks was preserved for posterity and today it provides us with an insight into an ancient craft and the life that went on around it.Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
