Houey Hong Vocational Training Center for Women
Houey Hong Vocational Training Center for Women information
You can learn how to dye textiles using natural pigments and then weave them on a traditional loom at this NGO group, run by a Lao-Japanese woman. It was established north of Vientiane to train disadvantaged rural women in the dying art of natural dyeing and traditional silk-weaving practices. Visitors can look for free or partake in the dyeing process (120,000K, two hours, two scarves) or weaving (200,000K, whole day). You keep the fruits of your labour. Transportation to and from the centre is provided for an additional 33,000K. The centre's contact point and commercial venture in Vientiane is True Colour .
