    • Located in an old mill in the Nauze valley, with its impressive engine room, the spinning mill testifies to the industrial heritage in Périgord. In the footsteps of the workers, visit the spinning mill through demonstrations, interactive exhibitions and videos, follow the transformation of raw wool up to the yarn.

      Games, slideshows, videos, information panels and models will allow young and old to discover wool fibre in all its forms.

      Experience the gestures of wool : It's up to you to handle the cardes and spindle !
      Discover impressive industrial tools from the early 20th century : the wolf-card, the flipper, the spinning machine, the winding machine... An important work of repair and regular maintenance was necessary to preserve all these beautiful machines.

      The former mill's reach has been redeveloped to encourage the development of wetland fauna and flora. The spinning garden is a place of relaxation conducive to observation : nature lovers, photographers or simply curious people will find their happiness in this place where batrachians, dragonflies and butterflies are kings !

      The spinning is :
      ► a place of learning : Creators and professionals offer internships and workshops to initiate or perfect their knowledge of textile skills in a spirit of exchange and conviviality.
      ► a place of production : We acquired a Dutch felt machine for the team to produce felt for textile manufacturing. 2014 marks the entry of the Filature into the departmental network of the Route des Métiers d'Art.
      ► a specialized shop : The spinning shop is linked to the site's theme : it offers a wide choice of wools, models, textile materials to be transformed as well as items made by local or national designers.

      Animations of events :
      • Tracking game to follow the thread for children all year round.
      • School holidays : felt workshops with the family
      • Craft Days
      • Mills Day on the 3rd weekend of May
