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.
