Create your own pottery like our ancestors

Create your own pottery like our ancestors

This craft dates from the Neolithic, period during which the Prehistoric Man shaped clay containers to store and cook food.

Pottery is linked to the consumption of vegetables and cereals. Keeping them in containers will replace the simple pit dug in the ground exposed to animals and bad weather.

Cooking food will also be facilitated by the use of fire-resistant containers.

Beyond its utilitarian aspect, ceramic was also used for artistic purposes as evidenced by the figurines of "goddesses".

During this activity, children, from 4 years old, plays with the material and its imagination.

Shape your pottery using the Neolithic technique, decorate it and take it away at the end of the day.

Questions about animations
  • What is the age recommended for carrying out the workshops ?
    • We have indicated the recommended age for each activity, but obviously everything depends on the agility and precocity of each child.

  • How does the tale visit go?

    • It takes place every Sunday at 1 p.m. and to participate you just need to book online minimum 24 hours in advance. It takes an average of 1.15 hours to visit

  • Should we book the prehistoric workshops ?

    • Prehistoric workshops cannot be booked individually. Each workshop is limited to approximately 30 persons. It is therefore not necessary to book because there are many timetables available for each workshop. The sooner you arrive the better you can enjoy our activities ;-)

    • Depending on the crowds in the park, we add an animator and therefore activities.

    • You can however make your reservation for the guided tour of the caves organized at fixed times (see timetables according to the calendar)

    • Our recommendation: before your arrival, organize your day according to the times indicated on our calendar page.
