More About This Experience

The Ock Pop Tok Living Crafts Centre is where the fascinating world of Lao textiles comes alive! Set in the grounds of a stunning tropical garden on the Mekong, it's the perfect place to learn more about this unique Lao art. We offer free guided tours where you can meet our weavers, artisans and even the silkworms. We also offer a range of classes in weaving and dyeing, which as our reviews show, are an unforgettable experience. This class starts with a morning of selecting and preparing natural dyes for the 3 coloured skeins each student will dye and later take home. The afternoon is spent with one of our master weavers, where each student is assigned a loom and a guide to assist them in completing their own scarf with traditional Lao motifs. Option 1: Natural Dyes + Weaving 3 Days A true weaving master class. This class offers the opportunity for students to explore the techniques used in Ikat weaving. The class involves wrapping the silk and natural dye process of the weft threads, which render the pattern in the weaving on the first day. The last two days weave your own Ikat Scarf (180 cm) to take home. Note: - 2 Days Includes dyed silk skeins and a 2-colour scarf with Lao motifs woven in class. - 3 Days Includes Ikat style scarf 180 cm.
