It was my third time in Bangkok and I wanted to spend a day in a more unusual way than visiting yet another Wat. I found out about Himapan Gallery online and decided to give the lotus leaf painting workshop a try. I'm not a painter and never have been really into painting so I was a bit hesitant but when I walked into the gallery, the owners Teck and Catherine welcomed me and all my hesitations and worries disappeared. They reassured me that there are many beginner groups often coming to the gallery and everyone is very pleased with the results.
The lotus canvas are so beautiful to begin with so you really have a beautiful foundation to work with, which makes the process easier.
I was so happy after my day at Himapan Gallery. I spent a relaxing day mixing paints, painting and chatting with Caterine and Teck and at the end I had 2 beautiful canvas, which the owners shipped for me to my apartment in New York.
The leaf lotus painting class lasts roughly half a day depending on what size of a canvas you'll choose. You can then take your work home or have it shipped.
Give it a try. It's definitely a memorable and unusual experience. Don't leave Bangkok without visiting Himapan Gallery.
