ChildRen or adults groups


Where :

Workshop led by a craftman, just nearby the cavern.

How :

  • An initial segment is dedicated to depicting the professions connected to Volvic rock.
  • A second segment involves a practical activity during which each participant is able to create his or her own enamelled lava.

Visitors discover the technique for “cloisonné” enamelling applied to a lava plaque first coated in a “slip”. The apprentice enamellers first make a pencil drawing on a plaque then apply coloured enamels to the rock. We also have models available for copying. Lastly, the plaque is baked at 980° C in order to fix the colours.

Options :

  • School groups (from elementary to high school). Duration : 1:15. Lava slab : 10x10cm
  • Adults : two options :
    • Premium package > size of the slab : 20 x 20 cm >> duration : 2:00
    • Beginners package > size of the slab : 10 x 10 cm >> duration : 1:15
Bonus :
• Supplementary activity to the Grotte visit
• Supervised by a professional artisan
• Satisfaction of designing one’s own item
• This workshop can take place at the Lemptégy Volcano (on request)
