I though I would share info on this Focus on Textiles in Laos tour in early 2013 to Thailand and Laos which is being led by Oxford Asian Textile Group member Dorothy Reglar.

Tour dates: 27 Jan – 10 Feb 2013
Quote:
- Discover a ‘weavers paradise’ and elaborate design motifs
- See old Laos textile and weaving techniques in local Hmong villages
- Visit temples, museums and galleries and attend a Baci ceremony

This specialist journey begins in Bangkok in Thailand amongst the 400 glittering Buddhist temples, traditional ways of life and timeless canals in the city.

Begin with an introduction to Thai textiles at Jim Thompson's House and Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles, housed within the Grand Palace.

Fly to charming and unhurried Luang Prabang, located on the Mekong River and be guided on an exploration of the history and culture of Laos, focusing on its textiles and village ways of life and current projects that encourage strengthening cultural resources for future generations.

See beautiful scenery, learn to cook Laos food and also travel to Phonsavanh and Vientiane before returning home."

The link in my intro above also includes the detailed itinerary and information on Dorothy. The tour is being run by The Traveller, a sister company of Steppes Travel with whom I have travelled with in the past. The Traveller seem to specialise in 'tours in the company of experts'.
