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.

Alphorn

The alphorn is the Swiss national instrument and symbol of dairy farming. The alphorn is crooked like a fir grown on a hillside it resembles. The wooden mouthpiece facilitates the generation of natural sounds, which are touching and heart-warming. Since 1910, the Swiss Yodeling Association has promoted the alphorn tradition in courses.
