We took three half-day classes - natural dyes, batik, and bamboo weaving - and the whole experience was so worthwhile in many ways! For the natural dyes, we did the whole process, from picking annatto fruit to making three tie-dye beautiful pieces. Batik was half a day with the last Hmong woman who teaches this. We used a small charcoal fire to keep beeswax liquid to apply patterns. And bamboo weaving sounds simple ... but it's not! All were satisfying to learn and made us appreciate the craftsmanship. The people are wonderful and the place is beautiful and right overlooking the Mekong.

I really enjoyed my time with Veo and the other weavers. The staff is very friendly and is eager to learn and speak English. I noticed that the staff of the restaurant remembers their guests when they come back for a class or when you walk around. With a friendly smile, they like to get to know you better. It was a very well-organized class. If the center can continue what they are doing and how they are doing it at the moment, pure and friendly, it's a lovely place to go and to learn about the traditional handicraft of Laos.
