Find out more about Rembrandt and his work at demonstrations in the museum. This extra activity offers you and your guests a unique opportunity to discover at close quarters the seventeenth-century techniques of this great Dutch master.
At an etching demonstration you will find out all about the technique of etching and see how an etching is printed. The demonstration is held in Rembrandt’s printmaking studio, the room known as the Caemer agter de sijdelcaemer.
The paint-making demonstration shows you how paint was made in Rembrandt’s day. In Rembrandt’s own studio you will see exactly how it was done in the seventeenth century. Pigments and oil are ground together between a heavy stone (a ‘muller’) and a grindstone to create paint.
