First, you will visit the oldest lacquerware shop in Bagan, and upon entering the workshop, you can check out each and every phase of production, right from splitting the bamboo to etching beautiful designs.

See how this ancient craft is developed into a form of art form and learn the details that are needed to complete each stage. You will begin the process with making wares from bamboo which are then painted with lacquer, a varnish made from Thit-si, a sap harvested from the Melanorrhoea Usitata tree.

Depending on the desired quality, 8 to 16 layers of lacquer are be applied. It can take as much as an entire year to complete a lacquerware product that makes it to those high street stores. Before the last stage, which is where things get creative, the surface is polished after being dried!

You will also have a chance to complete your very own masterpiece with the paint and a brush provided. After that, your inspirations will be set aside to dry, and collected later in the day or the following morning.
