Full description
Hmong embroidery is a skill practiced only by the ethnic Hmong people in Northern Laos. They decorate their clothes, tapestries, clothes, towels, bags, and much more with this craft. Most Hmong women are highly skilled in this craft, and they are the busiest just before the Hmong new year, churning out new designs for everyone in the family to wear.

Learn how they create these intricate patterns and create something of your own on any cloth you like! You can choose to simply create a decorative pattern on a piece of cloth or a small pouch, aprons, purses, or something more complex according to your desire. Simply check with the instructor, and more often than not she is able to meet your challenge.

  • Guided Hmong embroidery lesson
