A new original activity for the whole family to enjoy

When you arrive on the site, be sure to visit our artisans of old-fashioned crafts. Thanks to their know-how and their talent as communicators, they are able to capture the attention of our young visitors.

On this Apprentice Artisans Day, your children are invited to try different ancient techniques. You will have the pleasure of accompanying them during the different hands-on workshops being offered. You will be able to help them and to test your own abilities.

Attentiveness, patience and concentration will be rewarded with small souvenirs that the apprentice artisans will have created themselves!



Schedule

Ropemaker Our rope maker Jonathan is very popular with young visitors because of his participative approach. During this apprentice day, the young artisans are invited to make their own bracelets. The more stylish ones can even choose their own colour! Artisan Jonathan Roy
Basket Weaver Near her basket maker’s stall, Nathalie explains to your children a braiding method used by our ancestors. Then, using natural branches, each apprentice basket weaver will try out this technique and make his or her own ornament. Artisan Nathalie Levasseur
Spinner Experience the adventure of wool with the spinner, from fleece to weaving or knitting yarn. A tactile experience for the apprentices who will be asked to identify different fibres, handle the cards and even spin the spindle. To help remember all the steps, Eveline will invite your children to sing La laine des moutons (The sheeps’ wool). Artisan Éveline Ménard
Dairyman The dairyman needs the help of the young visitors to make ice cream. If your children are interested in having a sweet treat, they will have to follow all the steps for making homemade ice cream. The final product is always delicious. Artisan Gaétane Belisle
Shingle Maker The shingle maker carves shingles – those little wooden rectangles used to cover roofs. François will explain his technique and then invite the young apprentices to try his tools and carve wood the old-fashioned way. Artisan François Sorel
