Atelier Artygeorges, paintings restorer- Montclard - Anglards-de-Salers

During the European Days of Crafts, the Atelier d'Artygeorges, restorer of old paintings and frames, opens its doors. Presentation at the workshop of the different stages of the restoration process.

Paint restorer...

The public will have the opportunity to observe on site in the workshop the entire process of restoring old paintings and frames.

Several works will be installed in order to illustrate the techniques and successive moments of the restoration : cleaning, consolidation, chromatic retouching, relining, varnishing... and for the frames: reconstitution of the missing moldings with silicone moldings, molding of the missing parts or deteriorated, sanding, stripping, puttying, and finally gold leaf gilding.

These demonstrations will take place at the entrance of Montclard, in a typical Auvergne house with green shutters, and will be accompanied by comments and explanations while restoring the restoration process in the more general context of art history. .


Open from March 31th to April 2nd, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Weaving together at La Trame - Anglards-de-Salers

The Atelier La TRAME offers demonstrations and workshops. Discover this very cheerful and colorful weaving, where materials from recycling are used.

Weaving together !

Demonstration and discovery workshop.

The Atelier La TRAME offers demonstrations and workshops.

Discover this very cheerful and colorful weaving, where materials from recycling are used : old clothes, fabric scraps, the remains of different yarns.

By weaving the strip we never have two identical pieces, because we never know which fabrics, which colors and which invoices we will recover! And recovery, "upcycling", is what is best for our environment, it's green !

I invite you to come to my workshop to learn about this technique, discover the necessary steps for creation and to weave a few rows in a collective work, it's not difficult - even beginners and children can do it !

It is for everyone.

Everyday in free access from April 1st to April 2nd, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
