  • People have been making pots in and around Redon since the Middle Ages. Whether it’s utilitarian pottery or works of art, discover all the nuances of the potter's craft at Le Patiau, where you’ll find a museum space, a gallery-boutique with contemporary art exhibitions, as well as a studio where you can see pottery being made and decorated.

    In the local Gallo language, “patiau” is the small block of clay from which pots are made. If you want to know all there is to know about pottery, from the Middle Ages to modern day and from the block of clay to the work of art, come to Le Patiau in Saint-Jean-la-Poterie. In the museum space, you can discover how Saint-Jean de Bretagne earthenware became a thriving industry after the Second World War. In the workshop, you can watch them make and hand-paint the pottery. Make sure you don’t miss the original art exhibitions either, or the workshops for both adults and children and the guided tours.
