DIY woodworking/metal workshop in Lausanne?

Hi everyone,

I know this question has been asked before for other areas, but I'm curious if there are any public workshops in the Lausanne area. I'm not sure what the word might be in French, but in the States, they're often called Maker Spaces or something similar. Typically, you pay an hourly rate to use the woodworking tools. I think in German in it's called a Freizeitanlage, and I've found some perfect places in Basel for example (http://www.holzwerken.info/englishflyer.pdf).

Does something like this exist in the Lausanne area? Does anyone know what this might be called in French? I'd be so grateful for any help with this.

Thanks so much!

Here all community centers in Lausanne: http://www.fasl.ch
You have to check for your own what kind of ateliers/shops they have.

Bourdonnette seems to have a wood shop. But their website is down.
