Craftsmanship in the arts, a profession that borrows from both the world of art and that of crafts, has undergone a considerable feminization in recent years, calling into question the traditional model of handing down the craft from "father to son", and finally giving women a place and the spotlight. How can this feminization be explained? Do women artisans enjoy the same status as men? Is this feminization accompanied by the development of new conceptions of craftsmanship? What is the day-to-day life of a craftswoman? How does she work and create? How does this translate into projects, collaborations and awards?

Morgane Baroghel-Crucq Morgane Baroghel-Crucq is an artist and textile craftswoman. A Graduate of the ENSCI textile department, she takes a contemporary look at the age-old skill of weaving, using a sensitive, experimental approach.
Her creations are at the crossroads of design, craft and art. They are personal works and exclusive, made-to-measure developments, designed for professionals and private individuals who appreciate the excellence of gesture and exceptional projects. Morgane Baroghel-Crucq is a member of the Académie des Savoir-Faire Textiles of the Fondation Hermès, as well as of the Fondation Banque Populaire, and has just been named Creative Mind by Galerie Magazine (US) in 2022. She has been recently awarded of the Grand Prix de la Ville de Paris.

Laurentine Périlhou Laurentine Périlhou is an artist and craftswoman specialising in macramé techniques. She learned her trade from a Chilean craftsman during a trip to South America in 2009. She has seized on this manual textile art based on a succession of knots, totally unknown in the diversity of forms it can take, to bring it into her own universe. The hand is the tool by which the textile surface takes shape, guided by perfectly mastered know-how. Her workshop is the only one in France specialising in macramé techniques for exceptional projects.

Lucie Touré Lucie Touré is a graduate of l’École Duperré (degree in embroidery), as well as ENSAD (master degree in textile and texture design). She honed her skills for six years in the embroidery and fabric printing ateliers of Paris, working with pres)gious ready-wear brands and high fashion houses. She opened her own studio in 2018, so she could focus on applying her tex)le exper)se to paper. Her creative vision is driven by handmade technics combined with standards which grant preciousness and delicacy to paper. She slices up, weaves together and embroiders paper to enhance its look, opening up an array of new uses. Her creations (from single piece to bigger volume production) are designed primarily for the luxury sector : interior design, window display, set design, packaging.
