Tuesday, 12th November, CLBS invited all their staff and members of the public to join their annual DIY Krathong workshop at Kad Klang Wiang, to celebrate the most beautiful and meaningful festival in Thailand, Loi Krathong.

Loi Krathong takes place on the evening of the full moon in the 12th month of the traditional Thai lunar calendar. Loi literally means 'to float,' while krathong refers to the lotus-shaped receptacle which floats on the water. Regardless of the composition, a krathong will be decorated with elaborately-folded banana leaves, flowers, candles and incense sticks. During the night of the full moon, Thais will float their krathong on a river, canal or pond lake. The festival is believed to originate in an ancient practice of paying respect to the spirits of the water. The host of the free workshop, CLBS Ltd., provided the material and instructions on how to make the krathong to all participants. It was a bit tricky to learn the folding techniques but once one got it, everyone let their creativity run freely. All participants left with a smile and hopefully, everyone let go and make a wish.
