About the workproject

We need 5 volunteers

My farm in the countryside at the town called Mae Rim, out of the big city. I am still painting here and doing some art works in the nature.

If you come to my place, there are a lot of things you can do.
Depending on the season, you can help me with gardening, planting, watering. We are building a clay house in the dry season and we would like you to help.
We have a lot of fruit trees.
You don't have to do more than 3 hours of working in the garden or with the mud house per day. Most of the time, we hang out, do some handicrafts, make fresh fruit shakes, cook real Thai food. You can go around the farm and relax, or practice your Yoga or meditation skills, it's the perfect surrounding for that. We also have bicycles that you can use to explore the countryside.

You will stay in a bungalow, traditional Lanna style (there are 4 bungalows). It is a wooden house in the middle of the nature, with bathroom (hot shower) and a mattress on the floor. The kitchen and art studio area, where we spend the time together, is colorful decorated, there are a lot of my paintings and art works me and other volunteers made.

In the future, I am planning to have a permaculture farm and teach volunteers about it. For now, we have an organic farm and it will take some time to make all my dreams that I have in my mind become true. You can help me make them real!
My plans for next year (2018):
- build another clay house for a ceramic studio!
Everyone with experience how to build a ceramic oven especially welcome wink
- Create more recycling art (like furniture, decoration etc).

Summary for the lazy readers:
I am a Thai artist
Home stay on farm
You will do a little garden work/ building clay house (max. 3 hours)
Or hang out and do art/ art works
Stay in Lanna style bungalow
use our bicycles and explore the countryside
Have fun and enjoy the nature smile

If you want to come (also spontaneously), just call me!


We cook Thai food! (Degree of spicy food depends on the person who eats the least spicy). If you don't like Thai food, please understand that you have to buy your own food. For we don't eat much meat ourselves, vegans and vegetarians are welcome.
