Bernard Seguin Poirer – “Creation” Lunch

















Bernard Séguin Poirier is one of Québec’s most celebrated artists in the art of “fire”. Enjoy an incredible opportunity to meet this famed creator, as he and his wife personally welcome you into their home; an 18th century historic home in a picturesque setting.


This unique artist studied various art techniques such as drawing, sculpture, and goldsmithing before falling in love with metal enameling. He has produced innumerable pieces including art that appears on the walls and surfaces of many high-profile and commercial buildings throughout the province.


Monsieur Séguin Poirier himself is such an interesting character, well-spoken and with a charming sense of humour and warm enthusiasm.


To Begin Your Journey

You’ll be accompanied by one of Montreal’s favorite local guides. An artist herself, our guide will add amusing anecdotes, a little history of Montreal, and explore some of Québec’s influential artists on the way.


Upon arrival, enjoy cocktails and canapés and tour the adjoining workshop to learn how Bernard Séguin Poirier creates his works. The tour culminates in a glorious lunch surrounded by a profusion of colour in the magnificent chapel. The chapel is a true work of art; a testament and temple to Bernard’s love of this creative medium (it took him over 6 years of solid work and is entirely enameled!).


Special Touch

During lunch, Bernard will create an original work (valued at $900) that will be drawn at the end of the activity for one lucky guest. You’ll also be privy to an exclusive unveiling of his latest collection of Christmas tableaux, ahead of the general public!


Take home a parting gift, a few surprises, and the fond memories of a truly unique Montréal experience!
