The IaRex l’Atelier is located in a tranquil area of the beautiful port town of Saint-Raphaël. The studio is large, spacious and fully equipped ceramic studio, suitable for other mediums, with 2 kiln, tools, wheels, slab roller and tables. Artists are encouraged to be independent and use the time for creative exploration. This is a community studio: there are people who are either resident artists, workshop artists and teacher, or people who have arranged to come to work. Resident artists are the priority of the program; however, everyone is encouraged to make new friends, help each other, explore, laugh, create and maintain the general cleanliness of the studio.
