The art of transmitting one’s talent…
When art meets Art… La Petite École du Rang also wants to have an educative dimension, and that is why it has also developped special training courses and activities to engage children and adults and encourage them to learn the basic art of pottery and ceramics. We even have an art gallery in our workshop in order to create the perfect environment for creativity and learning. Our activites can be either custom or offered on the basis of our classic program. We are however always open to helping you find the best suited options for your needs so do not hesitate to contact us!

- Raku Workshop – November 3rd 2012
Enjoy a whole day of outdoor fun in groups of 10 or more people and discover the beauty of our regional environment, as well as learning the basic principles of ceramic Raku art. You will get the chance to learn more about this ancient japonese technique that cooks ceramic pieces of artwork at a very low temperature, producing unique colour and textural effects. The thermal shock that occurs during the cooking period creates surprising metallic imprints. At the end of the day, you will leave with your own home-made piece of raku art, as well as having met new and interesting people!
’À la carte’ activities: private, in groups or special corporate courses
