La Bastide Clairence > Art and Crafts

Fifteen artisan creators at work ...

"In today's world of mass production, it is refreshing to see that the Town Council of LBC has, for more than 20 years, encouraged creative artisans to live and work in the village. Their individual talents have gained in reputation, some of the workshop/boutiques are centrally placed in the village and some in the nearby countryside. Generally, they are open all year to the public, though from time to time, there may be absences due to work commitments and exhibitions elsewhere in France. However, let your curiosity get the better of you, push open their doors and visit – you will be most welcome. Watch them create, see the finished product and you may just be tempted to take a unique piece home with you!
Until the next time . . "
