After our fascinating stop in the weaving workshop we were enthusiastic about seeing the woodcarvers’ workshops.
A small shop attached to the workshop had many curious wooden objects for sale.
A story is printed on a scroll made up of thin sheets of wood. The story quite literally unfolds…
An antique wooden head for sale.
I guess bamboo is a type of wood. These bamboo balls are used everywhere for ball games.
I think this is also antique but I wasn’t entirely sure.
Of course, I headed straight to the food preparation area.
A couple of stops later, near the stone carvers’ street, was a small metal work shop.
The small scrap of metal the man is working on eventually ends up looking like this!
