Basketry workshop.


If Daniel Benibghi's workshop is in Vallabrègues, it is no coincidence.
Originally from Grenoble, this basket maker came to perpetuate the tradition of wickerwork in this village considered, since the 12th century, as a "basketry center".
By settling here, he became the last active local representative of an age-old craft.

With free access, his workshop allows you to discover all of the basket maker's paraphernalia - workbench, tools, etc. - the exhibits and, above all, the techniques of the trade.
Repeating ancestral gestures, Daniel Benibghi restores or manufactures a multitude of wicker objects: trunks, baskets, baskets, armchairs, rattles for babies…

Decorative or practical, these objects woven from vegetable fibers require impeccable mastery, rapid and precise know-how.
For example, a traditional cherry basket is designed in several stages: the bottom, the planting of the uprights, the assembly and the handle.
According to tradition, everything is done by hand. If you pass in the area in August, take advantage of the basketry festival.
It is an opportunity to meet artisans from around the world.

Workshop visit:
- Tuesday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.
- Internships

Many wicker objects for sale on site.
