From Fri 11 May to Sun 13 May - Centre International de Deauville - DEAUVILLE

Le Festival des Métiers d'Art (The Festival of Arts and Crafts)

Major changes are taking place in arts and crafts. The major haute couture designer brands are giving greater importance to the expertise of their craftsmen. The schools of applied arts are receiving hundreds of applications every year. The public is fascinated by the quality required to manufacture unique works of art.

The “Festival des Métiers d’Art” will include an exhibition area of the best creators of France, divided into professional poles (wood, glass, iron, textiles, stone, earth) and a training pole, composed of prestigious art schools. The public will also have the opportunity to discover a non-professional innovation area in which some workshops raise awareness about the techniques of craftwork.

The “Prix Régional des Ateliers d’Art de France” will be awarded during this event.
Visitors will have access to an art bookshop. A fashion show will be organized with the collaboration of the Éducation Nationale.

In the presence of Cyril Gouty, master glassmaker graduated in Touques, member of the Chambre des Métiers, regional delegate of the Syndicat des Métiers d’Art (Federation of Arts and crafts).
Cyril Gouty, with the experience coming from the organization of seven fairs, particularly the Glass Fair of Honfleur, will call on officially referenced craftsmen.
