The “tavillonneur” or shingle-maker cuts out and fits shingles into place. Shingles (called “tavillons” here) are one of the oldest methods of roofing or outside wall covering. There are no longer any official apprenticeships. Joseph Doutaz and Olivier Veuve have quite different techniques of cutting and placing their shingles.

Press review

It's well known: Jacqueline Veuve the film-maker, is making a series of films on woodwork trades in order to fix the movements and the words of artisans in everyone's memory. Joseph Doutaz from Epagny evokes the technique of "tavillonnage": the making and laying of the "tavillons" with some shots of the works done in the last few years. Olivier Veuve from La Forclaz (Canton Vaud) talks about the "anseilles", which are laid in a different way. La Gruyère, 1988
