Part of the historic Kähler workshop in Næstved is home today to a flagship store, where you can see and buy all the different Kähler products. You really get a sense of history when you walk around in the carefully renovated workshop building, so you can look forward to a unique shopping experience.
You can also take a guided tour and learn all about the more than 175-year-old ceramics factory.
In Magleby on Møn you can visit Bodil Keramik, which, amongst other things, produces utility items such as tea pots, dishes, bowls, cups and vases in hand-turned ceramic. The workshop is open to groups by appointment.
If you go to Vridsløse just outside Næstved, you can visit potter and painter Heidi Fournier. Here you can not only buy the artist’s unique ceramics and paintings, but you can also choose a piece of pottery and then paint it yourself under the guidance of the artist herself.
Holmegaard Glasswork’s story started in 1825 in Fensmark just outside Næstved. The glassworks grew rapidly and was almost a small village with peat halls, separate office buildings, studios, worker’s housing and a school. In 2018, The new Holmegaard will be inaugurated in the old buildings, which, amongst other things, will include a modern and high-tech museum of cultural history with a focus on the history of creative professions. There will be an exploratorium, exhibitions, including the Nordic region’s largest glass collection, live workshops, a brand store and cafe. So in other words, there is something to look forward to.
