LACQUER VILLAGE- Art History& workshop

Ha Thai Village has much of its history reflected through its typical & well-preserved architecture of functional buildings (pagodas, temple, mini-temple, communal house...) of an old Vietnamese village for spiritual purposes, which our first part of the trip will go through with detailed & insightful explanation. Many of the architecture are attributed toward Lacquer's founding father.

About your host, Hanoi Papaya

Born and raised in Hanoi, we are crafty kids of Hanoi Papaya team, who grew up attached to this city in many ways. We've been hosting on Airbnb since Aug 2017 and it helps to satisfy our wish to spread the Hanoian spirit by providing best insights of Hanoian culture and to give tips on food, art & craft experience, unique shopping & souvenir spots. Our Experiences are uniquely solely about arts and crafts because we think Hanoi needs more people who love it for what's in the city's soul. Our Airbnb homes are nothing like "just another hotel experience", so be ready to open up and explore the local culture and values! Excuse us for not being professional hosts. We are local Hanoians, all having a full time job, just like everybody else l but we are lucky enoug

What we will do

We will visit a private factory to see real-time production of modern-day lacquer. Then, at the home workshop of the last wood-carving artist, you'll be shown dedication and sophistication in the traditional fine-arts lacquer techniques (layered lacquer painting on wood carvings, locally unique materials like leaves, snail shells and egg shells embedded as "coating" or pattern in the most original Vietnamese lacquer painting practice, etc.)

You will have time to create your own simple lacquer items under dedicated instructions of our lacquer artists. Its going to be a plate/ flat painting/ coasters. Enjoy getting your hands stained for beautiful & usable artwork of your own!

At last, we will be making our own Vietnamese Phở Cuốn for dinner with a home-recipe with Ly's family in the village.

What we will provide

Bun cha/ banh mi
