Cabinetmaking Workshop P. Gabriel - Avignon (84)
Restoration of old furniture – Marquetry/Inlays – French polish


Career
   
In 1973 I entered the Fine Arts School of Nancy, department of Applied Arts, where I familiarised myself with colour, perspective, decorative projects and creation (furnishings and interior fittings). At the same time, I did an apprenticeship in a workshop putting into practice these projects with teachers who had worked for Vallin/ Gallé / Majorelle, cabinetmakers and pioneers in Art Nouveau (Modern Style).
- I left with a diploma in Interior Decoration and Fittings.
- Then 3 more years with traditional cabinetmakers under the aegis of the SEMA (Society for the Promotion of Arts and Crafts).
- Plus different advanced courses in marquetry and French polish with different professionals and professors.
- In 1980 I set up a workshop in Avignon.
