The aim of L'Outil en Main is to introduce young people, from the age of 9, to manual, craft and heritage trades, including arts and crafts. This initiation takes place in real workshops with real tools. They are guided by volunteers who are passionate tradespeople, often retired. The young people taking part in the workshops discover different trades throughout the year, and create their own handicrafts.
Through the creation of things, we better understand the world.
L'Outil en Main aims to promote all manual trades among young people. More than 100 trades are represented in workshops throughout France, including tiler, carpenter, roofer, mason, metalworker, mosaicist, stained glass artist, plumber, stone cutter, pastry chef, industrial designer, photographer, and more. Through its actions, L'Outil en Main opens up horizons for young people who discover "the intelligence of the hand" through a fun activity.
