Sophie Blanc

  • Instructor of a trainee in 2013, who since then created her own workshop
  • Instructor in gilding within our training centre since 2008

Sophie Blanc trained to become a cabinetmaket at the École Boulle. At the same time, she was working with a furniture restorer. She then passed her professional baccalaureate in Furniture Restoration in Chartres and worked as an employee in a workshop owned by a Meilleur Ouvrier de France (Best Craftsperson in France). She therefore carried out works for the DRAC of the Centre region.

When we contemplated opening our own workshop and for additional knowledge, she decided to follow training in gilding and gilded wood restoration.

Since we started our business, we regularly follow professional training to develop our abilities in various specific techniques. These training sessions enable us to keep informed of the evolution of products and techniques applicable to gilded wood and furniture restoration.
This is to better meet your expectations.
We are also keen on passing our knowledge and know-how. This we do by welcoming trainees from professional schools, apprenticeship and our training centre.
