The Tupiniers du Vieux-Lyon

9th and 10th of September 2017 – Place Saint-Jean and surrounding area. Discover an Ancestral Craft in Old Lyon with Les Tupiniers

Les Tupiniers? What is it?

This old French word dates back to the Middle Ages: the tupin was a container made of clay, and tupiniers were potters.

Once a year, Les Tupiniers du Vieux-Lyon gather for a weekend to bring this ancestral art back to life with a craft market, reminiscent of the great medieval fairs for which Lyon was famed.
 This friendly gathering is more than just a large market, however: people of all ages and walks of life can enjoy a leisurely browse through the stalls.

140 potters come from all over France and Europe to present their latest creations and share the delicate craft that is ceramics.
 It is an opportunity to see first-hand how pottery has evolved through the centuries to remain creative, modern and full of life!

With unique works of art, tableware and decorative objects, here is a chance to admire an age old skill revisited by passionate craftsmen and women and maybe purchase a gift for someone special (or yourself)! 

Each year, a theme is selected to set the tone for the activities and exhibition organised by the potters.

In 2016… 

For its 31th year, the Marché des Tupiniers has chosen the theme ‘Terre de Corée’ (Pottery of Korea).

Five Korean potters, living in France, present their works.

In the playground of the school Aux Lazaristes, do not miss the exhibit of 10 artists of Gyeongsangbuk-do Ceramic Asssociation, which provides a harmonious panorama of contemporary Korean ceramics mixing tradition and modernity. See a bojaghi exhibition (traditional colourful packing tissues).

Videos and percussionnists from Korea enrich the exhibits

Next edition...

Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September 2017, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Entrance to the market and exhibitions is free.
