Come and have an exotic holiday and combine it with wood carving lessons at a wood carving workshop in Thailand.
The workshop is spread over 2 days and we will cover several methods of wood carving - Japanese Zen Carving, Thai style wood carving, Traditional or Relief carving , Whittling and my own speciality, Natural Wood Art - How to turn a tree stump, branch or any piece of wood into beautiful peice of Natural wood art. You can then choose which method you want to learn more about on the workshop.
Personal attention - as the training is on a one on one basis (or two if you choose to bring a partner). Your partner can either relax by the pool or explore the local area. If they also want to attend the workshop a small charge of (2200 Baht - £50 ) would be required to cover a second set of Carving tools.
So for two people doing the workshop
the cost can be shared between you.
Included in the workshop is
* A set of carving tools of which you may
keep and take home with you.
* 2 nights accommodation at Coconut
Palms for 1 or 2 people
* Continental style breakfast
* Pick up at Khon Kaen Airport or the
* International and internal Air Fare
* Food and drinks
You will be staying in one of our bungalows at Coconut Palms our Pool resort in Maha Sarakham.
We are directly opposite a beautiful natural Lake, which is a nature lover or bird watchers paradise. Chill out after the training by the pool or explore the region and see the real Thailand, well away from the main tourist destinations.
After the workshop we suggest you fly to Phuket or another beach resort and have a week or more on some of the best beaches in the world. Or you could fly to Chiang Mai (in north or Thailand), Laos, Cambodia or Vietnam all within 1 hour of Khon Kaen airport. Another alternative is to explore Thailand by car or VIP buses which are very cheap and comfortable.
