More About This Experience

No commodity is better embraced by the Cambodian culture like copper is. And under the artisanship of the Cambodian copper-smiths, you will realize that this is a truly marvelous art! Their highly intricate designs and craftsmanship is only matched by the skilled carvings at the Angkor temples themselves! Khmer copper craft has had a long history with its people, making it a fully matured and highly developed art form one can deeply appreciate. In this exclusive course offered by Backstreet Academy, you will get a rare opportunity to create your own timeless piece. Carve your own custom copper bracelet starting from a flat piece of metal. The opportunity here is to create your own pattern/design that you want on the bracelet. Once you have your design, you sketch and crave the design on a flat piece of the metal. Then under the masterful guidance of the host, you chisel, cut, hammer, shine and wash the metal until you arrive at the final product.

I had a lot of fun making the copper bracelet! It gave me a new appreciation for the hard work and skill that goes into making the exquisite pieces you find for sale in their shop. Kheoun was friendly and helpful, and guided me in creating a simple bracelet that I'm really happy with. Thanks!

Had the greatest time. A two-hour immersion to a cultural wealth that seems to be dying among the youth. Highly recommend.
