The Sèvres National Manufactory and Museum presents “Exquisite Skills”(La Beauté du geste), a year-long programme which includes the opening of a gallery and a school, exhibitions revealing the remarkable talents of Sèvres’ artisans and resident artists, and off-site projects.
Opening of the new Galerie des SavoirFaire
In October 2019, the National Ceramics Museum has opened the new Galerie des SavoirFaire, which showcases the Sevres artisans’ unique skills and techniques. The gallery will unveil the creative processes and manufacturing secrets of Sèvres’ porcelain masterworks, from both the past and the present. The exhibition highlights the exceptional skills and expertise of the Manufactory’s artisans in connection to these creations, presented at the Museum.
Second part of Exquisite Skills
From 29th June to 31th December 2020, the second segment will spotlight: drawings and designs; the singularity of porcelain painting; iconic Sèvres gold; furnishings; and Sèvres’ extravagant forms.
L’École de Sèvres
L’Ecole de Sèvres has opened its doors in September 2019, as a highly specialized school for the Manufactory’s artisans. A complement to “Exquisite Skills”, the school will also offer hands-on art classes for the general public (children and adults), as well as for the private sector. Training courses will also be held for professionals. Far from pixeled screens and virtual realities, these activities offer an intimate introduction to the artisans and their materials.
