The Ciel association renews its workshop clearance in Indre

This third edition of the workshop clearance of the Conservatoire de l’Industrie de l’estuaire de la Loire (Ciel), organized on May 24, 25 and 26, 2024, presents itself in a new light: at 10, rue Pasteur, more than around twenty artists and creators will exhibit their works, amid a crowd of activities.

In addition to the classic sculptors, painters and photographers, this year there will be new activities. The repair café will take over the premises on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and an “all-terrain” hairdresser will be present. An upholsterer will present her work and a pastry chef will come and sell madeleines. Even more original, a cutler from Couëron, from the Forge de la rivière, will host two blacksmithing workshops, Friday and Sunday. A photographer, Etherlux, will also come to take collodion portraits, a complex process developed at the beginning of the 1850s. It requires chemical manipulations and the presence of a darkroom nearby, to allow rapid development of the photo. .

Renewal of the association

We owe this refreshing change in programming to a new and young team of organizers. Morgane Champagne or Jérôme Botte and a few others took charge of this third edition of the workshop clearance. “I worked on the first two editions, but there has been a revival over the past year,” observes the latter. “Morgane Champagne, who had exhibited on the quays and who will present photographs this weekend, for example took charge of the communication part of the association. We owe our new model and our new logo to her, he smiled. This allows the association to be known beyond industrial heritage. We are integrated and involved. »

As for him, he has been a member of the association since “four-five years” and particularly concerned by reuse, like his workshop neighbors: “Here, we work with different materials, wood, metal or other, and we help each other a lot. We organize ourselves so that everyone’s waste is used by others. »

All in music

If there are new features, the association keeps what has always worked: musical entertainment. On Friday, a gypsy jazz musician will host the evening, while La fille du canal, a jazz orchestra, will play on Saturday afternoon. A food truck will be present on Friday, as will a refreshment bar.

Friday 24, Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May 2024, empty-workshops, at the Ciel Association, 10, rue Pasteur, Indre.
