Little gifts made from palm leaves
In a poor country like Cambodia parents can’t afford to buy toys at the shop regulary. You may remember from your own childhood that nature is a pretty good source to make some small gifts and toys. Our host Ms. Dary will teach you how to create lovely hearts from palm leaves – which you have to pick yourself from opposite the house.
You learn also, that you can make a bracelet, a coaster, a ring and even glasses from those natural sources. Kids will have a lot of fun, but for adults it is also interesting to learn this technique. The same patters are used for everyday things, like a table mat or even one to sit on.
Sometime called the Southeast-Asian origami, there is not limit in your creativity. Using longer and older leaves, those weaving products can be used in a chair, for a bed or other household items.
