Your work of art in soft sandstone

The location fits perfectly: the studio of Le Bûcher is situated in the heart of the old town of Fribourg. Nimble hands work on soft sandstone and create works of art - just like in the Middle Ages. Whoever would like to, can give the tradition of sculpting a try, and can learn how to use a hammer and a chisel in one of the courses that are offered regularly. And he can get an inkling of what it must have taken to build the cathedral of St. Nicholas.
