Siam Study Trip Treasures in Silk tour will be held at at Ban Reng Khai with from November 4-6 Surin Province.

In 1987 Lady Lea Laarakker Dingjan founded the Ban Reng Khai weaving project. This project has since grown into the Yarn Community Project of Ban Reng Khai. Over the past 20 years, Lady Lea has established a study foundation, built fishponds, promoted sericulture, and helped establish village savings funds, sericulture funds, rice-banks, a village water supply, health care activities, a library, and village committees. Of these, the Red Yarn Project has become the most prominent, having been expanded to seven villages and including sericulture as well.

Lady Lea Laaraker Dingjan, a professional fabric designer, started with designs which could be made with traditional looms and tools. She then combined the traditional with the contemporary but continued the use of many traditional tools. She has introduced the use of solar dyes, in which the colors are fixed by the sun, and so far is apparently the only one using them in Southeast Asia.

Because recognition of her creative, environmentally-friendly, and tradition-based approach using original designs and high-quality-woven silk, the Weaving Project of Ban Reng Khai was awarded the prestigious Unesco-Aphada Seal of Excellence Award for Southeast Asia 2001 2005, 13 times.

The Siam Society will provide 2 meters of silk for each participant to paint your own design. Please be sure to bring an old T-shirt or apron for use when painting. Since the work will be out in the open, you should also bring a hat or some other kind of covering for the head. Members can buy the silk directly from the weavers and the village as well.
