1ère édition du salon de créateurs et santonniers

Les Baux de Provence - Divers lieux du village - Trade fair - In October - Dates and program to be confirmed - Free

Between heritage and modernity, tradition and creations, the Cité des Baux-de-Provence welcomes, for the third year, "Salon of creators and gurus", this first weekend of November. For this new edition, the salon expands and exhibits in many places of the village. Animations and workshops are also offered throughout these days. Subject to naive forms, figures in elaborate costumes, picturesque characters from the small provencal people, objects of art and decoration, are presented by a score of creators. Most of them are self-taught. The passion of the figures led to the art of the santon they reinterpret with creativity and originality. Parts, for some of the unique creations are made of clay, ceramic or raku.
