The Grands Ateliers de France: the passion of artisanship
Founded in 1993 by Jean Bergeron, the association of the Grands Ateliers de France brings together artisans who share the same attention to quality and a true passion for art objects. Restorers and craftsmen perpetuate their art over several generations, working with wood, leather, glass, textiles, metal, stone and rare materials.
The association encompasses 44 highly-reputed workshops that represent a multitude of hand crafts. To maintain excellent quality, the association asks the artisans themselves to make the selection. They cast their votes by secret ballot, ensuring sincere picks. The Grands Ateliers de France encourages its members to draw upon their mutual esteem so that they may continue to perfect their artistry and craftsmanship.
