A stopover in Najac
Your first step: Najac ! Stroll through the village and push the door of the many craft shops.
- Immerse yourself in the heart of the Middle Ages while listening to Régis Najac tell you the legend of peace knife. Its name indicates it, it was not a weapon, its blade not being able to crash to kill. Handles in wood or deer horn… Each copy is unique…
- Continue your way to Sylvie Sallet's studio, place du Faubourg. Watch it shape ceramics with the Jaspé technique.
- A little higher up the square, in their Elelta workshop-boutique, Tsedey manufactures silver jewelry and Gareth weaves by hand unique decorative items.
