The Third Season of Learning Express at DTU
Six months ago, students from DTU and the Singapore Polytechnic visited villages in Duy Xuyen and Que Son in Quang Nam Province to learn about weaving thread into cloth, weaving bamboo and broom-making. On October 5th, they launched the third season of Learning Express. Three lecturers and twenty-seven students from Singapore Polytechnic accompanied DTU lecturers and students to learn about traditional crafts from the villagers at the Phuoc Kieu bronze casting village, in Triem Trung 1 Hamlet, the bamboo weaving village in Dong Hoa hamlet and the rice-cake village in Thanh Chiem hamlet. Working with the villagers, they will create products themselves and research ways to improve production.
