Stencil Class in Laos

Hey everyone, whilst on my travels through South East Asia, I took part in a stencil class in Laos learning a traditional stencil technique that is used by Buddhist monks to decorate temples in Luang Prabang. Under the guidance of Anousith Phonethasith (Sith), he taught me the technique of using chisel like tools to cut motifs and patterns out of handmade paper. I throughly enjoyed the class and would recommend anyone else to take part in class if you ever go to Luang Prabang in Laos. Sith is a very talented artist and here are some links to his website, which features some of his amazing designs!
