Our competences in the teaching field are well-known :

We organize two kinds of courses :
- synthetical group course : The course includes a very comprehensive theorical part,
explaining a project, from A to Z, and a pratical part, which offers the possibility for everyone
to discover the cutting, the sewing, the wickerwork...
The meeting of people who have build or who are in the way to built allows to provoke interesting
debate. This course is for you if you want to built, or if you just want to
have a better knowledge ! During this course, you will discover all the subjects.
However, the duration does not allow to go deeply in theses subjects.
15 to 25 people take part in this stage, on a whole week-end.
- personalized course : Subjects presented before are very deeply traited, depending
on the whishes of the people.
E.g., it is possible to perform the cutting of an enveloppe, to sew a good part of a balloon,
make the stress and shape calculation, fill the administrative matter...
It is a fully personalized course, for few persons (2 to 6). Duration is between 2 and 7 days,
depending on the traited subjects.
Courses are organized in french or english, depending on the participants.
- For synthetical group courses, the location depends of the year. We use a teaching room,
a gymnasium, a club-house... There systematically are a sewing-machine and a cutting table.
- For personalized courses, the location is Baziège. Three double needle sewing machine,
