Mobile Training for Village Weavers

The skills of traditional weaving are learned from mothers to the young girls in many villages but the number of skillful weavers decreased drastically during the civil war. So young generation in the villages like to learn more patterns and improve their weaving skills.
In 2009, based on the requests from the village weavers, CYK organized 6 times mobile workshops of one to two weeks in the communities in Takeo province. The main themes of the workshop were tying skills of new ikat weft patterns, natural dyeing and warping skills. Total of 240 village weavers participated in 11 training courses in 2009 and 2010.
