What you'll do

What we’ll do What you will do: 1. Welcome all the guests 2. Introduce myself, my teammates, and all the guests to one another. 3. Explain why this activity is unique and special (ability to design and handmade) 4. Explain briefly the timetable of the workshop 5. Select 1 from 5 ready-made silver (92.5%) shapes (round, oval, diamond, rectangular or square) to be used for pendant, bracelet, or key-chain. 6. Select either “hammering” or “engraving” pattern - not both: a. Hammering pattern process: with the use of a rounded-tip hammer, you will tap thoroughly on the surface of the silver shape. b. Engraving pattern process: with the use of an engraving machine , you will engrave your selected design (over 10 sets of Lao art designs to choose from) on the silver shape. 7. Design your art first on paper. 8. Try the skills of hammering or engraving on brass sheet until ready. 9. Apply your newly learned skills on your selected silver shapes. 10. Polish your silver piece. Or for a matted look, you will finish it with sand paper. For an antique look, you will finish with an oxidized solution. 11. Drill holes on your piece of art to tide or hang a nylon rope (done by us). 12. Knot making for fastening the rope onto the piece of silver. 13. Optional (free of charge): we could machined-engrave your name or initials on the back of your silver piece (done by us).

Hi! I'm Charles. The art of silver jewelry making has always been my passion. I've learned my skills from Phillip Rickard, the famous Hawaiian Heirloom Jewelry maker in Honolulu, Hawaii. After 10 years of experiences, I returned to Laos, my home country, to learn and continue with Lao traditional jewelry making. For the last 19 years, I've been creating jewelries. My passion in jewelry making leads me to share my skills and experiences with others who are inclined in the same direction. Hence, I and my teammates (Dee and Khao) are really excited to share with you this quick and easy technique of silver jewelry making at my workshop. Last but not least, I am confident that you will come out thrilled and proud of your own artistic creation.

Where you'll be

We will conduct our class in an opened Lao-styled patio connected to our actual workshop --surrounded with lots of tropical plants and flowers. It is very airy and peaceful. We are located at Thatluang Tai, south of Thatluang village. On your way, you will pass the famous landmark Thatluang Stupa and next to it is the Thatluang Tai Temple. From Kamphengmeuang Road, a small paved road Hom #10 will lead to our own workshop. House No. 679
