The Boat Makers in the press
You will first find in this space our press releases, but also a list of press articles and videos/reports highlighting the Boat Makers, their workshop, the construction of bacôves and escutes as well as the Audomarois marsh.
As the last boat makers in the Audomaroise region and as guarantors of the conservation of this tradition, but also as lovers of the marsh, we are very often asked to bear witness to the history of Saint-Omer and the marsh. Thus, this section cannot include all the number of articles highlighting our activity and our projects.
Do you want to make a report on the Audomarois marshes, our passion and our constructions? Send us a message via the classic form or contact us at 06.08.09.94.88
We will be happy to share our passion with you and with the public.
Find HERE our press kit concerning our partnership with EDEN 62 and La Grange Nature. On Wednesday afternoons in November, La Grange Nature and Les Faiseurs de Bateaux organize educational tours for teachers in the region. Our goal? Promote the Audomarois marsh to schools and co-construct school outings centered on environmental awareness and the discovery of the wonders of nature.
