Since August 1, 2019, the Hessenpark Open Air Museum has been home to a new clockmaker’s workshop in the House from Rörshain. It is run by Joshua Becker who completed his clockmaker training some years ago and hosts seminars alongside his work in the workshop.
The specialist carrys out repairs on all types of clocks, with an emphasis on historical timepieces. He can also manufacture cogs as well as complete clocks. As a special service, Becker offers house calls to pick up clocks for servicing and repair, putting them back into operation. His seminars are suitable for interested museum visitors and experts alike. The clockmaker also plans to open a store. Thinking long-term, he has set himself the goal of initiating and selling a “Hessian School Clock”, a classically designed precision pendulum clock, in collaboration with the Hessian School of Clockmaking
