We will meet in the Tibetan quarter area, where you will be welcomed in a Tibetan traditional way, with a khada. We will serve you a good cup of coffee, while having an introduction of Tibetan culture and history. Then we go to our training center where we start our handmade yakwool workshop! I will first show you the process of yak hair and Tibetan techniques such as stitching, weaving and knotting. After that, you can enjoy doing it by yourself. Learning by doing is the best way to enjoy art! At the end of the workshop, we will move to our handicraft shop were you can see all our different, beautiful, unique and finished products. I will also share some anedecotes behind the product. You are welcome of making some personal purchases, just kindly note that it is not included in the workshop experience price. I want my guests having a good time at Dancing Yak and leaving us with more authentic insides of the Tibetan culture and people lives. Im looking forward becoming your host.

Im from Switzerland and am living among Tibetans since over 13 years. I travel a lot through their regions, love their culture and through thousands of interactions, I learned many of their tradtional techniques, which disapear more and more. In our training center for Tibetan women, one can learn sewing, knotting, i.e. Everything is made of yak or sheep wool, felt or brocade fabric. It helps them regenerate an income for their futures and supports often their whole families. We can show you how the yak wool is processed, what techniques are unique for Tibetans and what products we are making.
