Basket weaving is one of the oldest handicraft techniques in the world.
In our workshop we wanted to learn about the historical background of this craftsmanship in Thailand. Professional basket weavers who produce baskets on a daily basis in an OTOP (One Tambon One Village Product) village in Rayong came to our school and gave us an insight into basket weaving and showed us how to make our very own basket. We learned about the sourcing and the process of the material for the production of the baskets.
At the end all students were proud owners of a self-made “takra” (basket in Thai)..
