ÉÉAM is located about a 15-minute walk from Sauvé metro station, or near bus line 55 Boulevard Saint-Laurent.
If you plan to visit us by bike, you can park your bike in the ÉÉAM cycle locker room, located near entrance on the 3rd floor.
Your course schedule
Please note that the School opens its doors at 7:30 a.m. It is important to arrive on time in order to benefit from the explanations or demonstrations which take place at the start of the course and which ensure safe and complete learning.
For practical workshop classes, to ensure your safety, please wear work clothes and closed shoes. It is also advisable to tie back long hair and avoid loose sleeves and sides, as well as jewelry that could get caught in machines.
If you have one, you can bring a dust mask, hearing protection, safety glasses and safety shoes.
Equipment to provide for your course
Unless otherwise stated in your course description, ÉÉAM provides you with the materials and tools necessary to carry out the exercises and/or projects, as well as a course notebook. (Exceptions : La touche finale EN, Le grafigné, L’antique, Le rembourré, La tressée → See the Materials and equipment provided section) If necessary, the School can also lend you hearing protection and safety glasses.
In order to maintain the safe and fair aspect of the courses, participants must only work on the pieces of wood provided for in the course – no personal projects outside the training are accepted. The ÉÉAM offers a workshop rental service to allow members of its community to work on personal projects.

Drink and meal
Since it can be quite hot in the workshop, we recommend that you bring your bottle of water to stay well hydrated. For safety reasons, only closed, unbreakable bottled water is accepted in the workshop.
For classes that take place all day, a one-hour dinner break is scheduled. The ÉÉAM cafeteria gives you access to a refrigerator and microwave ovens. In addition, some cafes and restaurants in the area remain open on weekends – be sure to check their opening hours.
See you soon!
