THE MASTER CUTLER VISITS ZURICH FOR THE SECHSELÄUTEN – 18.04.24

The Master Cutler is pictured (above) with Michael Pocock, the Master of the Worshipful Company of Cutlers, and from Right to left with Jürg Honneger, the Zunftmeister, the flag bearer and Christian Keller the Alt Zunftmeister.

 

The Master Cutler was delighted and honoured to be a Guest of the Zunft zur Schmiden in Zurich as part of the Sechseläuten or Spring Festival.  This included taking part in the procession around Zurich with the Zunft watched by 1,000s of Swiss and tourists.  It was a wonderful experience and deepened the relationships between Sheffield, London and Zurich.

More information on this ancient festival is available at www.sechselaeuten.ch and information on das Schmiden is at www.schmiden.ch

The Zunft zur Schmiden translates as the Guild of Blacksmiths, and they have existed for over 600 years.
