NEVERS ET SES METIERS D’ART

Famous for its faïence ( stoneware)  makers and glass blowers who have been exercising their art within its walls as soon as the end of the sixteenth century, the city of Nevers wishes to highlight their craftmanship, a mixture of traditional techniques and creativity.
Presently,  as many as 20 professionals display and explain their craftmanship in every part of the city.... : the faiencemakers of course, but the upholsterers, painting, ceramics and musical instrument restorers as well and the jewelrers,   stringed instrument makers and  cabinetmakers...

Nevers, which has earned » the Arts and Crafts City « label,   supports its craftmen by welcoming them in a special space dedicated to them within le Palais Ducal, the emblematic sights of the city, and accompanies them during their shows and various  exhibitions outside Nevers.
