Hi I'm a new member Lai Heung Lam, originally from Hong Kong and now live in Auckland, New Zealand. I belong to a local textile group and am a weaver and spinner. I'm planning a trip to Thailand in August and am looking at weaving courses in Chiangmai or Bangkok. I'm particularly interested in backstrap cotton weaving. I saw the Spicy Villa Karen weaving and fell it to be a little too touristy but may take it if there's no other options. Would appreciate any recommendations. Much thanks.

If you come to Chiang Mai, you could perhaps take some classes at Studio Naenna. I spent several days learning how to warp and weave on a backstrap loom- you can read about my experience on my blog: http://tribaltrappings.blogspot.com/2009_10_01_archive.html [scroll down to the bottom part of the page]. Studio Naenna's website is: http://www.studio-naenna.com/ - contact them to see what they could offer in August. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and gained a new respect for all the work that goes into producing a handwoven textile.
