This class starts with a morning of selecting colours, gathering plants, and the preparing natural dyes using the traditional Lao recipes. Then you dye 3 silk skeins or cotton napkins to take home! After lunch in our Silk Road Café (included in the price) each student gets their own loom. Together with the support of one of our master weavers, you will spend the next day and a half weaving your own silk scarf. This class offers great insight into both weaving and dyeing!
Choose from one of the two options of products to make yourself and take home. Colours and patterns are customisable for all items!
This class offers the opportunity for students to explore the techniques used in Ikat weaving. The class involves wrapping the silk and natural dyeing process of the weft threads, which render the pattern, followed by weaving your own Ikat Scarf (180 cm) to take home.
