Description

What better way to appreciate a craft than to give it a try? Our mission has always been to promote the discovery of Laos through textiles to our visiting guests in Luang Prabang. Today, after more than 20 years, we thought we would take our commitment further and share our knowledge and love of Lao textiles with the world through hands-on online workshops. We offer a variety of workshops at our Living Crafts Centre in Luang Prabang and for this new DIY kit, we are bringing online an exclusive experience! Learn Oma Embroidery from Mrs. Sychanh, an Oma artisan living in Ban Longthang, a remote village in Phongsaly Province, northern Laos!

So, are you ready? This workshop requires little equipment, is accessible to beginners and explores a fascinating aspect of Lao culture; Oma embroidery! Each kit includes all the material you need to complete a set of four Oma inspired coasters, a colorful e-booklet packed with information on the Oma in Laos as well as step by step illustrations and an online self-paced class. We designed this DIY Kit with various options for you to choose from. You can choose between indigo and black for the base fabric and three different colorways for the embroidery.
