I was born in a family with three generation making Hoi An lanterns and bamboo products such as bamboo bags, lights and bamboo household products. With the love and the desire to keep the traditional lanterns of Hoi An and also the career from our parents, I would like to open this workshop to teach our guests how to make their own lanterns. I hope this is a very fun good way for travellers to interact with local people and bring home with a lovely souvenir made by their own. I am flexible with timings so feel free to send me a message if you would like to have a class at another timing rather than public calendar.
