La Filature is an artisanal and associative centre in La Sarraz.
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 includes 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. The eclecticism of the actors in this vast alternative space creates a dynamic atmosphere, favourable to creation and exchange.
Painters, sculptors, blacksmiths, cabinetmakers, bow makers, graphic artists, jewellers, seamstresses, florists, musicians, doctors, therapists and quilt makers all work together in a communicative energy. Not forgetting the children and their families from FEEL, the Faire l'École En Liberté centre.
For those interested in the history of the place, exhibitions on the industrial and post-industrial period can be consulted in the common entrances of the different buildings.
In order to achieve its objectives, the association aims to organise, animate and host multidisciplinary cultural activities.
La Filature's events can be found in the events calendar.
