The Sans Souci Gallery is the home of the Louisiana Crafts Guild – and you’re invited to visit! The gallery features the work of the state’s finest artisans. You’ll find beautiful, often functional pieces in a variety of media, including pottery, jewelry , glass, textiles, metal and wood. Here you’ll find unique gifts – or objects for your own home – that will be treasured for generations. Member artisans produce contemporary and traditional Louisiana crafts.
Sans Souci means “without care” or “no worries.” The 1,200 square foot facility adjacent to Parc Sans Souci is intimate, yet stimulating. The gallery is housed in one of Lafayette’s oldest structures. Built between 1885 and 1886, the building has had many uses – including a pecan buyer’s store, an overnight inn, a post office and the Sans Souci bookstore, its namesake. The space was restored in 2001 to house the works of guild members.
