Know-how

There are two tutorials available for you to learn how to make a brandon/eth har or eth halhar (in Occitan-Gascon):

  • A short version (in French with subtitles) is aimed at the general public to discover the know-how related to the manufacture of brandon
  • A long version (in French with subtitles) is aimed at an informed public, in order to learn about the techniques and materials used.

The brandon made in Régades is an example that has no normative value: there are other brandons that have their particularity (with or without straw, fewer corners, different ignition system, etc.). It is mainly about giving directions to those who have lost the know-how of the manufacture or simply want to discover it, to continue transmitting the tradition of Saint-Jean brandon / eth halhar de Saint Joan.
