Fantastic day at Ock Pop Tok with batik and weaving classes. The teachers were skilled and supportive; this was such an incredible experience. From the moment of arrival with complimentary tuk tuk from town, this place truly shows it’s commitment to being environmentally robust and supportive of local experts. Everyone working there is knowledgeable, friendly and open. Please support this wonderful endeavor!

We spent 2 afternoons of our few days in LP in their porch restaurant! Comfortable chairs, great view, and delicious & creative (with healthy choices) food and drinks. The spring rolls were a visual delight, with different colored fruit or veggie in each one. The chef obviously is concerned with beautiful display and freshness. We also toured through the weaving areas. Helpful displays telling about the history and the process. Well done. A shop is there as well as classes for those who want to learn how to weave.

I spent a lovely afternoon here, mooching about, having lunch, being shown the process of creating silk thread, talking to the weavers, learning about natural dyes and dying my own scarf - pale pink and cream, the dying agent? Teak leaves! How cool is that? The location right above the Mekong is just sublime. This a really lovely restorative place and when I was sufficiently restored, the tuk tuk which had brought me there from the Ock Tok Pop shop in Luang Prabang, took me and put me back where he got me from. Perfect! Ock Tok Pop produce lovely textile souvenirs and gifts and the proceeds stay with the local communities - always good to know. Oh yes and I had a gorgeous lunch here in the restaurant, looking out over the river, and later, a cocktail. There is a programme of workshops here - weaving and dying - range from an hour or two to several days. To be recommended.

Dear milliesmum2016, Thank you for taking time to write this! While we are excited when folks sign up for our classes, we are equally happy to hear that folks come to the Living Crafts Center, take our free tour, chat with the artisans, eat and drink at our Silk Road Cafe and generally relax and enjoy mingling in our artisan community -- this is what we mean by "discovering Laos through textiles". Thank you for stopping by! Kind regards, The Ock Pop Tok Team.
