Workshop description

Michel will welcome you to his studio for a three-hour introduction to woodworking.

The discovery of the space, some theoretical bases on woodworking and the tools used will start the session, you will go from the raw material to the finished product and discover truing, planing and gluing.

To shape your beautiful board, you will start by cutting it with a scroll saw, manual or electric, after a small test on scraps...

The scents of the wood will be revealed during the machining...

Rasp, glass paper of different grains will allow you to round and polish your kitchen utensil, the progressive softness of your board will refine and charm your tactile, olfactory and visual sensibilities...

You will leave this workshop with new knowledge, but also a beautiful object that you will be proud to use every day.

Un très bon moment dans l'atelier de Michel ! Nous avons chacun fabriqué une planche à découper de A à Z,pas aussi simple qu'il n'y paraît, et on découvre qu'il faut beaucoup de pratique pour arriver à un beau résultat, mais c'est très réussi malgré tout et on est enchanté de ce qu'on arrive à faire. Je recommande vivement. Cécile
