Transmission

To me, transmitting is a way to give back what I received in 1985, after enrolling at the Ecole Boulle. If I can teach and train a few youngsters willing to learn a profession and to have an independent life as an adult, I feel deeply satisfied. Basically, my workshop is opened to anyone. Unfortunately, hand-engravers are becoming rare and I heard too many times the motto: ‘A secret life is a happy life’. As a result, no transmission is provided. Yet, the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France charter explicitly states (line N° 7): ‘In simplicity and humility, sharing and transmitting one’s knowledge’.
