For most crafters, finding the place to craft can easily becomes "Mission Impossible" !
So a very ingenious girl had the clever idea to open a place for crafter to come and craft in a old plumber workshop in Paris. It is called the Etablisienne (etablis = is the piece of furniture craftmen work on).
You can borrow tools there and exchange with other crafters, how cool is that ??
The place has been furnished with all equipment from the past.
The place is open 7 days a week from 9 am to 9 pm and on sunday from 9.30 to 6pm
Here is the adress if you happen to be in Paris for a while and need a spot like that :
88 boulvard de Picpus - 75012 Paris
(Metro : Nation or Picpus)
You do need to book in advance : 01.43.46.35.32
