What you'll do
First I will tell you about the traditional Lai Rod Num the Thai ancient crafts gold with black lacquer painting technique which is used in the decoration of temples or palaces pillars, window and door panels, ceremonial bowls, jewelry boxes, and especially Buddhist scripture cabinets. The traditional Lai Rod Num is one of a long process and very complex of making. A new adapted technique that I'm really excited to share in this workshop is a quick and easy way to create the art. During this time you will be served with some snacks and drink. Next, we will begin the workshop, a new adapted Lai Rod Num technique is to trace a design and paint with the new adapted mixture on an A4 size (8.3"x11.7") piece, to which many gold leaves are added. Then a piece is washed with water to wash away the painted background, leaving behind beautiful real gold patterns. After the workshop, you will go home with one of your own Lai Rod Num a beautiful crafts gold masterpiece.
Lai Rod Num has always been my passion. It's a Thai ancient crafts gold with the black lacquer painting technique, the art of illustrations using pure gold leaves to create patterns. It's one of the very long processes of making. I've learned Lai Rod Num in the College of Fine Arts in Thailand before I went to the US for my degrees in Graphic Design and Illustration and work as a graphic designer there for many years before I came back to Thailand. My love of Thai arts compelled me to pursue my passion leading me to share with others, a new adapted technique, quick and easy way to create Lai Rod Num what I'm really excited to share with you in my workshop.
