An insight into crystal glass engraving

2 hours Max 2 people200 euros per group

Franck Benito invites visitors into his workshop, the same place where his father trained him to be a crystal engraver. He will present the space, the tools and the process required to create some of Crystal Benito’s most iconic pieces. The skills shared from one generation to another will be revealed, starting from a design, creating the desired shape blown by mouth in crystal to the cutting, the patterns and the polishing. To end the visit, Franck Benito will introduce the collection of Crystal Benito creations, ranging from the emblematic classics to the more recent, contemporary pieces that showcase the history and know-how of this longstanding company.
