About the venue
Since six generations, The Royer de Soulaines Dhuys tile factory / pottery transforms, according to traditional techniques, the beautiful clay of the Aube(Dawn) into flamed tiles, bricks, tiles and potteries in a 100 m3 wood stove. Certified EPV (Company of Living Heritage) since 2008, the Tile factory works for Historic monuments. Visits and internships(training courses) of Pottery are organised all year long. The visit of the big(great) oven is an amazing and mysterious moment when the alchemy of the fire(light) transforms the earth(ground), after 9 days of cooking, into products of long-lasting(sustainable) construction during generations. Come to meet us in our workshops(studios) steeped in history and find charm and authenticity of a craft(home-made) production in old(former).
