The public will rediscover emblematic creators but also 16 primo-exhibitors as discovery is in the heart of our identity.
Bootmaker, basket maker, feather worker, wool craftswomen, wood or ceramic sculptors with very personal universes, a carpenter who mixes tradition and modernity, fashion and ethical stylists, innovative and refined jewel creators, engraver or also an Angora wool producer… will know how to seduce our visitors!
They come from the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region and from France. The members of the Pole also have their own place this year again.
The public will find art objects, unique items or little series in the sectors of decoration, fashion and tableware art.
Numerous knowhow and materials will be represented: wood sculpture, ceramic, engraving, feather work, basket making, leather work, cutlery, engraving glass, textile creation, jewellery, boot making etc.
Workshops will allow young and adults to get initiated to these knowhows.
Finally, the exhibition will be deployed in the entire city with workshops and shops open to the public as well as the arts and crafts shop which is located rue Carnot during the restoration works of the castle.
« Rue des Métiers d’Art » affirms loud and clear that it is possible to consume differently with the arts and crafts. Buying an art and craft object means to buy something beautiful, ethical and sustainable! Buying an art and craft object also means to meet a craftperson and discover his/her personality, it allows to add human in our daily life.
