Visiting hours: 1) Atelier Municipal de Passementerie (headquarters), 21 rue Richan, Lyon 4th district, Tuesday to Saturday from 2-4 pm all year round: In the former apartment-workshop that belonged to Madame Letourneau, looms were used to weave gold, silver and silk thread ribbons for more than a century. 2) Atelier Municipal de Tissage, corner of Montée J. Godart and Rue Lebrun, Lyon 4th district, Tuesday to Saturday from 3-5 pm all year round: Enter the workshop that formerly belonged to the Ressicaud family to see a demonstration of weaving on a Jacquard and mechanical looms in a 19th century family setting (kitchen and roof space).
