The Manoir de Fontaine is located in the heart of the bottling industry, and is a non profit-making association created within the framework of the law of 1901. This association was born in November 1995. To date, it consists of 70 members. The purposes of this association are registered in its statutes :
- Global animation of the “Manoir de Fontaine”
- Conception and realization of programs of cultural activities...
- Protection of the heritage glassworker in the heart of the valley of Bresle through diverse demonstrations such as temporary exhibitions and the organization of the " Feast of the glass " which takes place every year, the second weekend of August.
The Association of the “Manoir de Fontaine” wants to show diverse technical abilities of the bottling professions, where visitors can see : jewels, lamps, engravings, modelling, glass spun in the blowtorch, the enamels on coppers, sculptures, furnitures, art of entertaining, stained glasses and glass dough being demonstrated.
In 2007, a glass-blower present at the "Feast of the glass" told that when she was 16 years old, she visited one of the very first "Feast of the glass". She was fascinated so much that she has decided to follow this vocation.
