Visits for playschoolsFor playschools: a visit to discover silk and materials
Each child touches the raw materials: cocoons, silk threads, bobbins, diverse silk fabrics.
A simple weaving technique is demonstrated to help them understand how the threads interlace and compose a fabric.
Then, we will demonstrate the “real trimming looms” for the kids for a sonorous display! A surprise is waiting for them at the end of the tour!
4 to 6 year olds

From Tuesday afternoon to Saturday (9am-12pm / 2pm-6.30pm) by appointment, except on public holidays.

Technical aid is provided
The association owns an educational kit (technical index card, cocoons, bobbins, fabric samples, shuttles, Jacquard punched cards...) that we lend to teachers on request, in order to prepare the visit in a fun way.
