Join Bang Sai Royal Folk Arts and Crafts Centre in improving farmers’ living conditions

Since 2006, we have supported the Foundation of the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand (SUPPORT) in organizing exhibitions to display and promote the masterpieces and fine arts products from Bang Sai Royal Folk Arts and Crafts Centre. Apart from promoting Thai artistic heritage, the proceeds from sales of the handicraft products will be used to provide future arts and handicraft trainings to the children of farmers and planters. By encouraging them to turn their artistic skills into supplementary occupations in order to earn extra income during the off-harvest season, their living conditions and local economic strength will majorly improve.
