Visits for individuals
Visites individuels adulteSoierie Vivante invites you to discover Lyon's very last remaining weaving workshops from the 19th century.
The association organises guided visits with no booking needed.
The "bistanclaque pan" (as it's known in the trade) of the looms makes this noisy visit one you won't be able to forget!
