School groups at the museum

Classes CP and CE1 of Branches of Elementary School took the Toy Workshop Wood under the sun of June. Arrived at 10am, the 41 students were divided into 2 groups. One went to visit the Popular Toys with Theresa and Lorraine and the children made their own toys; unique assemblages of pieces of wood, small fruit trees, various natural elements … mosses and lichens …

The other group went with Manon to discover the artisans, their tools and their works; the saddler, blacksmith, the blacksmith, the wheelwright and the shoemaker. They worked in pairs on issues enabling them to synthesize the visit. All sitting in the grass, Manon has told them the story of the Lady who loved horses too, Martine Laffon and Joëlle Jolivet. The kids loved the sweet and funny story by finding objects seen at the museum!

The groups met for a picnic in the shade of large trees in the park. And the afternoon beginner groups have joined the mediators that they had not had the morning ..!

4 large boxes filled with imaginative toys made by the children could take the bus back … phew!

Some achievements of children:

The memorial in Aucelon

Vincent Humbert me to the smallest 1914-1918 war memorial in the town hall of a small village – Aucelon – perched high in the mountains of the Drôme. This is an interesting and moving folk art work created by a peasant in a remote farm in the municipality. The work is full color, made of plaster and “papier mâché”.

The Museum of Popular Arts Laduz opened for the European Night of Museums

On Saturday, May 21, 2016 from 21h to midnight many visitors came to discover or rediscover the Humbert collection and the garden of the museum illuminated.

To the question “What are you doing tonight Saturday, May 21?” a hundred visitors were present and walked the halls of the Museum of Popular Arts Laduz from 21h to midnight for the European Night of Museums. Nocturnal visitors were affected by the general Humbert collection; the overwhelming evidence that we deliver the toolkits and the works carried out by missing these rural artisans, games and toys for a time when they were handmade daily and sensitive report that the man had with nature .
We were thrilled to welcome so many interested people and discover the museum at night, under the moon.

Thank you for coming, soon to read our events ..!
