Sculpteur Flamand

Alain, Owner and wood sculptor

A native of Québec City, wood sculptor Alain Flamand has been a fixture in the Petit Champlain district for over 30 years.

One of the first artisans to set up shop there, Flamand has been passionate about woodcarving since he was a boy. For as long as he can remember, he has drawn inspiration from wood, creating magnificent works using the traditional, direct-cut woodcarving technique.

A vast selection of works

This unique boutique, where the aroma of wood wafts over you when you walk in the door, offers a vast array of high-relief works, all carved by hand. From the tiniest figurine to large pieces sculpted in stained or colored wood, there’s something for everyone looking to decorate their home, give as a gift, or keep as a souvenir of their visit to Québec City.

The artisan's unique pieces are carved directly on site.

Connecting with the artist and his art

The onsite workshop provides a unique opportunity to connect with the artist and his art. This direct relationship with visitors is a source of inspiration for the artist, over and above his passion for woodcarving. With his warm, friendly welcome, it is obvious that he derives from this close human connection the satisfaction of offering something beautiful to people from all over the world. His art travels all over the world, too, and it is not unusual for people to come and order customized works from him. Alain Flamand is also firmly committed to training the next generation, and he passes on his passion by offering in-store training courses to artisans seeking to make woodcarving their trade.

Custom orders

In addition to the vast selection of works on sale, the artist also takes custom orders for individuals and corporate customers. Whether for a personalized house sign or a bulk order of gifts to offer at a Québec-themed convention, Mr. Flamand and his team will be happy to take on your challenge.

The tradition of woodcarving lives on in the Petit Champlain district thanks to Alain Flamand’s talent and passion.
