Sarawak Rainforest World Crafts Bazaar is back

KUCHING: The Rainforest World Crafts Bazaar is back this year at the Sarawak Cultural Village from July 8-10.

According to a press release, the Rainforest World Crafts Bazaar is sited right within the Rainforest World Music Festival venue, a cultural event that needs no description — it is the best in the region by any standards!

Over 20,000 music fans turned up last year, many of them ‘repeaters’ who are sure to make their way again to Damai in July.

The Rainforest World Crafts Bazaar’s theme for 2011 is ‘Green Crafts’, with crafts made from natural, sustainable and/or recycled materials being featured and promoted.

Local institutions of higher learning will be showing the way when it comes to putting almost anything to creative use.

Special stress is laid on practical craftwork this year. A number of skilled artisans will not only demonstrate their traditional skills, but also give hands-on lessons to anybody prepared to try out something that is old in itself but new to the eager learner.
