BAC PRO Tapisserie
My Erasmus+ program in Ireland
I had the chance to participate in the Erasmus+ program to carry out a one-month internship in upholstery in Ireland. This internship allowed me to improve my English level even if the Irish accent is sometimes very strong. I quickly got used to the accent thanks to the many discussions I had with my tutor, called M. Seamus, who took the time to explain the instructions to me when sometimes I didn’t understand them.
This internship enabled me to become more autonomous. For instance, I easily learnt to take the different means of transportation of the city all by myself by using the so many bus and train maps! And I also discovered a culture different from mine.
From a professional point of view I had the chance to learn different upholstery techniques such as car seats renovation, using paint or inlay of pigmented fabric.
