The Workshop

The luthier Yann Poulain’s workshop is located in the heart of the Montpellier old town, on the ground floor of a 14th century building in the Ste Anne district.  It is located precisely at 32 rue de l’Amandier. St Anne being the oldest district of Montpellier.

There are many doors decorated with sculptures such as sheep, dragons and other chimeras from the medieval imagination. At the top of the hill is the Church of St. Anne. Culminating at more than 69m, its bell tower is nicknamed the “Glaive de Montpellier”.   Nowadays it’s the “Carré St Anne” exhibition centre of contemporary art. It is in this room full of history, conducive to inspiration, that Yann spends most of his time creating.
