Dinan has attracted craftspeople and artists for at least 20 years. The densest concentration of studios is along the rue du Jerzual, rue de la Chaux, and the rue l'Apport, where art objects are crafted from glass, wood, silk, leather, and clay. Our favorite shopping street is Jerzual. Other good streets include place des Merciers and place des Cordeliers. You may be able to buy an item directly from the artisan, but it's more efficient to visit galleries that sell objects by an assortment of the artisans. Check out Galerie Bleu Sonatine, 15 Grande Rue (tel. 02-96-39-38-26), where a wide cross-section of paintings and crafts helps provide perspective on the arts in Dinan.
