The Look Workshop

Vézelay Basilica Workshop of the Gaze

Nothing better looks than the hand that applies to reproduce or describe. In-depth visit, the workshop of look offers to those who already know the basilica to return pencils in hand.

It's about taking the time to seeto be caught, to impregnate by a ray of light, the momentum of a perspective, the detail of an ornament or the drape of a sculpture, a brand of stonemason engraved on the ground ... and to retranslate them into drawings or in words, according to the desire of each. An artistic exercise, at the model school, to better resonate with the 12th century master builders.

Come and talk to the artist-builders. A time of exchange between participants will then allow you to cross your eyes and your impressions.


Duration : 2 H15 The preparation for the workshop and the sharing of the experience are done at the Visitor's house. The personal work in the basilica is about ¾ hours.
