La Filature is a craft, cultural and leisure centre in La Sarraz.
A place "La Filature
This former industrial site takes its name from the blanket factory it housed from 1871 to 1977. Converted into a craft, cultural and leisure centre, La Filature brings together some forty craftspeople, artists and associations who have set up a mosaic of workshops and unique premises. Over the years, the former factory has become a place of expression and inspiration for artists and craftspeople.
This atypical but abundant site is ideally situated on the hiking trail from La Sarraz to the Tine de Conflens, in a bucolic and green setting on the banks of the Venoge. It is a cultural space with a concert hall, a Portuguese centre with a restaurant, a climbing gym, an artisanal brewery as well as workshops and meeting places.
