Who would have thought we would find a dying and weaving course so fascinating? My husband and I and our 10 year old spent a fabulous day at Ock Pop Tok learning how to dye and weave using traditional materials and methods. First up, we chose the dyes we would use for our silk, found most of the ingredients in the garden, then chopped, pounded and boiled until we had fabulous vibrant silk drying in the sun. After a lovely meal, we sat down to weave a silk mat with a traditional pattern on a hand loom. Thankfully there were professionals looking on to make sure it all worked, but we were astonished with what we managed to achieve and very impressed with the technology and the skills of the professionals.
