WITH THE FAMILY : An activity to learn while having fun

Soierie Vivante organizes weaving sessions intended for all types of audiences.

Children (from 7 years old) and adults are welcomed at the trimmings workshop, the former home workshop of Henriette Létourneau, nestled on the 1st floor of a Canut building.

The sessions last 3 hours, with 2 hours of weaving, 30 minutes of guided tour and a snack for the youngest for €16 per person.

The session is creative: each person makes their own fabric at their own pace. This activity stimulates children's attention, coordination and imagination…

Everyone leaves with their woven creation!

We offer sessions during school holidays (you can register online) or, if these times do not correspond, on request on 04 78 27 17 13 (depending on our availability)!
