In addition to being able to observe the work of the skilled craftspeople at close quarters, visitors can also participate in hands-on demonstrations of coral dyeing (in which cloth is placed over actual coral and dyed in such a way as to reproduce the natural coral pattern) and create a truly unique, one-of-a-kind design. Visitors can also take part in Bingata pattern color dying demonstrations and coral dyeing of items such as T-shirts. Finished items can also be taken home as souvenirs.
