About us

Artisan creator of Totems Messagers*, I invite you to come and discover wood sculpture during a half day of initiation in my Compiègne workshop.

You can choose from several decorative patterns allowing you to understand the same principles of sculpture as those used in the realization of my Totems.

You will discover the grain of wood, the tools (hollow gouges, flats and chisels) and the techniques to quickly achieve (very) satisfactory work!

This course is aimed at adult beginners. Young people accepted from 12 years old.
I only take four trainees at a time maximum so that I can take the time to support you in a personalized way.

Find all the information relating to the courses (dates, prices, detailed program) and the Totems Messagers on my website

*Messenger Totems are beech wood statuettes, carrying your stories. Depending on the person and the occasion for which you are giving it, you choose the animal, the colors and the patterns that speak to you. Together we imagine a harmonious statuette full of symbolism, then I sculpt and paint it for you. When you have it in hand, all you have to do is slip a message inside to make it the guardian of your words.
