SPA Ville-écrin des Jolités-Treasure trove of Jolités

Lydwine de Moerloose

Apart from its world-famous waters, the town of Spa has many other hidden riches that are less well known.  The Jolités worthily represent the skill and decorative refinement of joiners, painters and inlayers, developed within the dynamic artisanal industry known as “Wood of Spa”.


With the art historian Lydwine de Moerloose as your guide, linger in the painted nooks and admire the details drawn in Indian ink or gouache. Discover the diversity of these small objects of genuine joinery, which have evolved from their historical roots in the mid-seventeenth century to form part, not only of the larger and smaller scale history of the town but also of the modern world, with its collectors and artists, who are today still opening new avenues into coming decades for these artistic skills
