WELCOME

Hello and welcome to my Web site.

I am Yves Laforest and I live in St-Colomban, north of Montreal.  My wife, Anne, and I, have run a kite business for 15 years and my specialty was (and still is) giant kites.  I still participate in several kite-flying activities in Quebec, the main one being St-Honoré dans l'Vent,  as well as in the United States with Scott Fisher of Gift of Wings.

Pieuvre à Grandes-Piles

In 2001, the activities changed and I turned to woodworking.   Today, I am therefore pleased to present to you a discipline called INTARSIA.  I will explain you what it is and you will be able to see pieces that I have made over the years as well as pieces that are currently available for sale.

 

UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

A T T E N T I O N

The exhibition that was to be held in Grandes-Piles as part of the Journées de la Culture will not take place.  May be next year...

Saturday 9th, Sunday 10th and Monday October 11th, from 10:00 to 04:00 PM.

The exhibition will be held at the Val Saint-Côme tourist resort located at 501 rue Val Saint-Côme in Saint-Côme, J0K 2B0, as part of the autumn event.  Come and say hello if you pass by.

Saturday 30 and Sunday October 31, from 09:00 to 06:00 PM.

The Week-end Couleurs et Saveurs, organised by Michel Dugas, will be held at the Rosemère multisport centre located at 354 Montée Lesage, in Rosemère, J7A 4S2.  And I will not be alone; my friend Gilles Ferragne will also be there.  Gilles is a wood turner who makes very beautiful pieces at the wood lathe.  He even let himself be tempted by sculpture.  It is to be seen.

Come to say hello!
