The wood in all its forms in Revel

Situated in the area formed by the triangle of Toulouse, Albi and Carcassonne, the royal ‘bastide’ of Revel welcomes you, and invites you to discover its 14th century covered-market square, its medieval houses, its arcades…


Designed to store the water from the streams of the Montagne Noire in order to feed the Canal du Midi, the Lake of Saint-Ferreol was constructed in the 17th century by the builder of the Canal du Midi, Pierre Paul Riquet. Revel, the capital of decorative and fine furniture making since the 19th century, is the home of many master craftsmen and cabinet makers and one can visit their workshops and museums to see examples of their craft.

IMARA's structure (Institute of Arts and crafts) has been focusing its energy and impetus skills for 18 years now to the benefit of two main missions : 

- Transmitting crafts know-how through ongoing vocational training

- Promoting arts and crafts as well as the people involved by organizing specific activities and events (national and international conferences, collective actions...)

Owing to an efficient network dynamics implying economic, educational and touristic partners as well as the knowledge of the sector, IMARA now offers an environment conducive to the success of creation projects and to the development of companies in relation to arts and crafts.
