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!

Mrs. Hour has been doing this for 20 years. While doing the activities, she has helped up to 20 people to have jobs. She makes a living by selling her products to tourists at Angkor Wat and wholesales. Mrs. Hour has been supporting her family and her fellow villagers for years. These days, she is running a special workshop for you. She and her fellow villagers will teach you how to make a handbag and share their experience as well as their cultures to you within the class.
