Journées Européennes des Métiers d’Art: the Comité Colbert presents the third edition of its “Entrée en matière” event

The Campus Mode Métiers d’Art et Design, the Mobilier National and the Comité Colbert invite the general public to discover the fascinating world of fine crafts through the third edition of the “Entrée en matière” exhibition. The event is part of the Journées Européennes des Métiers d’Art (JEMA).

The Comité Colbert is organizing the third edition of its Entrée en Matière exhibition at the Galerie des Gobelins, Paris, from April 4 to 7.


The organization, which has represented the French luxury goods industry since 1954, is inviting the general public, and particularly young people, to discover the professional skills of craftsmen and women from the major houses, as well as future talents still in training. In the same spirit as the De(ux)Mains du Luxe event held at Station F, Parisian accelerator center, last December.


This new edition, staged in conjunction with the Mode Métiers d’Art et Design campus and the Mobilier National, also promises visitors a rare and therefore precious pleasure: strolling through the majestic Galerie des Gobelins.


The event is one of 8,000 events and studio open-houses taking place from April 4 to 7, in Paris and the surrounding region, to mark the Journées Européennes des Métiers d’Art (JEMA). Now in its 18th year, the JEMA, coordinated by the Institut National des Métiers d’Art, will feature the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and Portugal in this 2024 edition. The event will be entitled “Sur le bout des doigts”, evoking discovery through touch – “discovering, touching, smelling and feeling the crafts”.


The Galerie des Gobelins as a showcase

The “Entrée en Matière” exhibition is a unique opportunity to discover expertise, work with noble materials, attend demonstrations and meet craftsmen from prestigious French luxury brands.


Many of these companies have already taken part, including Atelier de la Boiserie, Atelier Meriguet-Carrère, Baccarat, Bernardaud, Breguet, Chanel, Christofle,Hermès, 19M, Mobilier National, Puiforcat, Sèvres-Manufacture et Musée Nationaux and ST Dupont.


This new edition innovates in its visit itinerary, as it will be possible to stroll through the heart of the Gallery, as well as the Gobelins enclosure, usually inaccessible to the public.
