The lacquer ware workshop

A short visit to a lacquer ware workshop for the disabled in Saigon Vietnam. The work is mind blowing, the designs are made using tiny pieces of eggshell and mother of pearl shell. We were told that the workshops provide employment for people who may have been affected by the use of agent orange and other war associated problems.

About Willie Wombat

Wombats come from Tasmania which is the island state at the bottom end of Australia. We enjoy traveling and try to do a bit before we get too old to enjoy it anymore. We are currently both (Mr. & Mrs. Wombat) in our seventies so the time must come soon to pull up the armchairs and footstools and settle down to life on our 17 acre property 30 klm from Hobart which is the capital of Tasmania.
