Coiled bamboo + Indigo
2 weeks workshop, Chiang Mai, Thaïlande
D17/20 - Craft & Design in South East Asia,
Organised by the French Embassy in Thailand
In collaboration with Tuangpang Surintha & Porameth Takhiao
We spent two weeks in Chiang Mai, Thailand, discovering traditionnal craftmanships and experimentating with local craftsmen and craftswomen.
In collaboration with Thai designers, we worked with the craftswomen of Slowstich Studio, specialised in Indigo dyeing and Shibori techniques, as well as with the Sri Pun Krua community, exploring traditional coiled-bamboo know-how.
Thus, this research project is about discovering, experimenting and refreshing traditional Thai craftmanships, by combining visions of Thai and French designers working alltogether.
