Learn Silk Scarf Weaving in Laos
The shamanic Tai-Lao people mastered the ikat tie-dye technique centuries ago, weaving a single, continuous silk thread into exquisitely patterned scarves. This three-day class gives the literal ins and outs of the process, from cocoon silk extraction and dye mixing to matching patterns on a traditional standing loom. Three-day class, $173; other weaving and dyeing classes and workshops from $35; rooms from $55 a night.
