BAAN TAWAI WOOD CARVING VILLAGE OTOP VILLAGE

Description : How we became the village of wood-carving For forty years, the art of wood carving has been passed down from generation to generation. During BE 2500-2505, the first three villagers, Pho Naan Daeng Puntusa, Pho Jaima Inkaew and Pho Huen Puntusart had left Baan Tawai to learn how to carve at Nomsilp, a manufacture shop on Wua Lai Street, Chiangmai Gate.



They brought their new found skill back to Baan Tawai.
