La Tisserie unwinds the threads of the history of weaving, as well as the methods of this ancient worldwide art.
A visit to La Tisserie, the museum of weaving in Brandérion, close to Lorient, will take you back in time, with a cultural and historical journey into the art of weaving, an ancient and colourful craft. Shimmering materials, ingenious machinery, handlooms, stories from the past - there's plenty to discover. Find out if the methods have remained unchanged since the first weavers in Africa, and discover the symbolic language of the motifs. Don’t miss the presentations on traditional looms and the various activities based on this thousand-year-old craft. Wool, cotton, and silk – leaves, seeds, and hair – each material is woven differently to obtain a soft, rough or resistant product. You’ll learn all about the subtleties and different techniques. Just weave your way here!
