We loved our experience at Ock Pop Tok. We took a half-day natural dyes class and the two of us were the only ones in the class. We made three different plant-based dyes each and dyed two skeins of silk and a silk scarf each. It was really fun and the setting is beautiful and peaceful. It would be a wonderful place to stay. I could have hung out there all day. They have a nice looking cafe, but we didn't eat there. This is a great organisation to support.

Ever since I started looking in my travel book I knew I had to go and see Ock Pop Tok Centre. It lived up to it's expectation and beyond. I took a half day dying class, which was amazing. They took us through how silk is made, weaving, and all the dyes. Then we found the roots, leaves, etc needed for our dyes in the nearby gardens. It was an incredible experience and a great treat to do. You can either do a silk or cotton scarf as a part of the class. I had a wonderful soup there for lunch, and would suggest if you take a class to eat a meal there after. Many people chose to do multiple classes as they have so many great things to offer (basketweaving, batick, general weaving).
