Discover the traditional craft of rattan weaving with Penang's rattan master, Mr Sim. This workshop will guide you through the process of rattan weaving - and you get to bring home your souvenir.

Rattan was the material of choice for rattan furniture and decorations due to its durability, before the invasion of plastic in our everyday lives. These days, the art of rattan weaving is gradually vanishing with time.

Join this 3-hour rattan weaving workshop taught by Mr Sim, who inherited this tradition from his father, and learn of the history behind rattan weaving. You will also experience the hard work needed to perfect this craft, followed by a workshop to create your own piece. You can bring this handmade souvenir home to commemorate your visit.
