Description

Get hands-on with the amazing woodcrafts that have been a part of the culture of Hue for generations. This lesson lets you explore the traditions of Vietnam's former capital and try out ancient and modern techniques under the tutelage of a master.

Not far from the Imperial City where Vietnam's last dynasty ruled for more than a century, you get your chance to practice the flourishing tradition of woodcraft in central Vietnam. Learn to combine modern and ancient techniques to realize this unique form of craftsmanship, with help from instructors with years of experience under their belts.

During the course of the workshop, as you sit on a floor covered with wooden chips, you can bring a block to life and form a deep connection with the creation as you give it form. Leave with your own handmade wooden mask, plus a newfound appreciation for this craft and an ability to better appreciate the beautiful carvings at the nearby imperial palace.
