Spend a peaceful day overlooking the Mekong river and learning about silk worm, silk and natural dyes at Ock Pop Tok. You'll learn about every aspect of silk, including silkworm life cycle stages, silk textures, how silk is dyed and how silk is woven.
You can prepare 3 dye colors that you then use to dye your own skeins.
Once you are done dyeing your skeins they are washed and hung out to dry. You then select two pre-dyed colors and are given instructions so that you can weave your own place mat with a Lao motif to take home.
Included: lunch, water, guide/instructor, all materials.
