Le Clos Charmant. (Boemus Klos is Breton for Le Clos Charmant)
The main object of this non-profit association (R.N.A. : W462001205) is to give to its members the possibility to be involved and participate in art and culture. To learn the methods and techniques through practice, skills exchanges, courses, events and exhibitions.
Le Clos Charmant is a new project for a Center for Arts and Culture based near Guingamp, Brittany, France. The Center is due to open in Summer 2012.
As a non-profit association, the center is reliant on the interest of others (artists, makers, environmentalists, teachers and learners); it will provide sanctuary, inspiration and skills based knowledge for those that invest time and energy into it.
