Biot, France’s glass capital

Eddie Légus will demonstrate how to work glass with a blowtorch. Eddie Légus was born in Baccarat, the city of crystal, so it was only natural that, at the age of 14, he began an apprenticeship with René Georges Baillet MOF 1965, with the noble material and particularly difficult-to-learn technique of blowtorch art glassmaking as the basis for his creations.

Cagnes-sur-Mer and contemporary jewelry

The town of Cagnes-sur-Mer will be exhibiting part of its collection of contemporary jewelry, acquired as the exhibitions progress.

The Artsens association will be offering a workshop to create “Pep’s” jewelry from recycled materials. Workshop for 6 people every half-hour, until 10pm – Registration on site.

Le Cannet and its craftsmen

Located in Vieux-Cannet, rue Saint-Sauveur boasts a rich historical and cultural heritage, as well as a wide range of artisans grouped under the label
“Ville et Métiers d’art” of which you will discover a selection during this evening.
