I did the copper workshop with Vibol and Haystome. I loved it so much I went twice! There are so many reasons why the experience with Haystome is so special, their team is helpful and friendly, the classes are intimate, the craft is interesting and you couldn’t get this experience any other way. The best thing about it is meeting the artist, Vibol is so passionate about copper carving and keeping this traditional skill alive. Plus, the Haystome team were on hand to translate. Highly recommend and makes a great gift for someone!
