Earthenware is an art!

Voted 9th favourite monument of the French in 2015, the Moulin de la Blies brings together two exceptional places on a single site.

An industrial wasteland? A garden? A work of art? It is all of these things at the same time in the Jardin des Faïenciers! A place to walk and escape thanks to a setting that combines nature with the historical heritage of the banks of the Blies. Here, old millstones or brick chimneys stand alongside Steppe lilies and other hydrangeas in bloom in summer, and in autumn, let yourself be surprised by the gingerbread smell of the cake trees. The colours, plants and other small creatures in the garden change with the seasons and evoke the inspiration of the earthenware decorators of past centuries.

On the same site, another must-see: the Museum of Faience Techniques. It is as if nothing has changed since the workers left. On the tables, piles of plates seem ready to be fired or decorated, in the middle of the room there are still trolleys of raw material and between two machines a dryer loaded with pieces. Interactive demonstrations are occasionally given to the public in this almost completely reconstructed production workshop. From the preparation of the clay, to the different firings, through to decoration, you will learn all you need to know about earthenware manufacturing techniques and tableware!

Free on the first Sunday of each month and during the Christmas Market.
