ABOUT: With her family having run a Thai silk business for over 40 years, Wiwan Lertphokanont is now looking to share that expertise with the public. Located in the middle of Thonglor Soi 13, The Loom is set up as a community for people interested to learn more about silk or simply on the look-out for a new weekend hobby. The studio also sells its own silk products and weavingrelated materials.
CLASSES: The initial two-hour workshop (B1,800) teaches basic weaving techniques and lets you weave your own scarf. The follow-up course (level 2-5) teaches you to create free-form and traditional patterns and mix them with embroidery techniques (B1,800/class for 2.5-4 hours). Students are required to pass the initial class before registering for the latter. The half-day scarf class (B2,400) takes three hours and you will be weaving a longer scarf. The studio also welcomes kids aged six and above.
