Meet Our Artists

Near the entrance of the Museum are original workshops dating from 1838. The mechanical workshop still features the leather belts, pulleys and shafts that powered the workshop machinery.

Today these workshops are home to a variety of professional artistic and creative tenants including painters, ceramicists, model makers and blacksmiths.
