Try your hand at one of Laos' greatest traditions in a guided woodcarving workshop with a skilled master of the craft.
What to Expect
You can get a sense of a trade that dates back to the era before the Khmer Empire, creating the beautiful sculptures and frescoes that adorned the temples throughout the region.
This exclusive experience is run by a master woodcarver who used to create pieces for Laos' royal family, with a plethora of works at the National museum on the grounds of the former palace. Don't miss the chance to learn the wisdom that derives from centuries of tradition and long years of practice.
If you don't manage to finish your carving in time, you can ask your host to complete it for you, with the finished piece delivered to your hotel in the next 1–2 days.
