Les Chantiers Écoles- Artisans Angkor

On day 6 we had the opportunity to visit Les Chantiers Écoles- Artisans Angkor in Siem Reap. The school was developed in 1992 to revitalize Cambodian traditional cultural art, which was dealt a severe blow by the Khmer Rouge and its aftermath. The school teaches wood and stone carving techniques, traditional silk painting, lacquer-ware and other artisan skills to alleviate poverty for rural youth while passing on artisan skills to a future generation and providing job opportunities.
