atelier duo ou famille

A sensory and creative discovery

A moment to be shared in duo parent-child to make an object: bag jewel, sheath, etc...

Everyone will find their place by making a part of the object, the simplest for the child and the most technical for the parent.

In the end we work with four hands to bring all the parts together. A third person can be added.

Where has the cow gone?

The activity begins with a 30-minute sensory discovery where parent and child learn, through an interactive quiz, about the history of leather from prehistoric times to today's alternatives (fish leather, mushroom leather, pineapple leather, etc.).

After getting to know the material, the pair will make two leather objects: a medieval bag or purse + a leather bracelet.
