A link between traditional craftsmanship and contemporary art, discover the creative basketry of the Atelier Brins de Malice...

My career
Braiding strands, weaving bonds
Chemical engineer by training, I discovered basketry and wicker work in 2008. It was a revelation. After being trained in the trade by experienced basket weavers, I decided to found the Atelier Brins de Malice in 2014. I also hold the CAP in basketry from the National School of Osiériculture and Basketry since 2019.
It is in Thoureil (Maine-et-Loire) overlooking the wicker luisettes that grow in the silt of the Loire that I decided to settle. In this preserved setting, I weave by hand unique pieces or published in limited series. Delicate and structured, my creations are the result of an elaborate design work.
I also offer plant braiding workshops ranging from initiation to improvement. These are real places of exchange and sharing, and I will be happy to welcome you there...
... because by weaving strands of wicker, I have above all at heart to weave human bonds!

My job
Creative basketry: beyond use!
First art if there is one, basketry finds its origins in the mists of time. From animals to humans, the weaving of plants has kept its essential vocation: to improve daily comfort.
Over time, the rationalization of the techniques and the simplicity of the tools implemented have allowed the traditional gesture to be transmitted and to reach us, remarkably, intact. But following industrialization and mass manufacturing, the transmission of this purely artisanal know-how tends to disappear.
Today, the challenge of the revival of basketry undoubtedly lies in the fact of going beyond its primary utilitarian function. And that's what I chose to do:
revisit utilitarian basketry with new shapes,
dare to make new combinations of techniques and materials,
and finally, to propose achievements with a purely artistic vocation.
A true link between traditional craftsmanship and contemporary art, creative basketry allows me to freely express my sensitivity, drawing on the heart of ancestral techniques.
