Fire, earth… but also water and, above all, know-how.
In huge buildings with amazing architecture, the Tuilerie de Pouligny allows to (re)discover trades for the most part disappeared: tile maker, bricklayer, potter, but also blacksmith, charron…
It regularly hosts artists from other countries and continents. Everyone brings their own technique and leaves a trace, a work. Sometimes even an oven is built to experiment with a particular type of cooking.
