Visitors have an opportunity to make their desired Sayong at Win Kraf which is located in Kampung Sayong Lembah. The clay items being sold at this place are all human-made, and they are sold at reasonable prices. The artistic and skillful staff are always friendly, and ready to help.
You will have a chance to make your own labu sayong the traditional way. This will involve moulding clay into a shape referred to as labu on a solid wood. The labu will then be left to air dry before being fired in a dome-shaped bricks of wood. It will then be removed when it is dry and red hot. Paddy husks will then be immediately poured over it so that it can create the black sheen color. In case the paddy husks are not used, the labu will be light brown in color. The color of the labu however, will be determined by the iron and mineral content that is present in the clay.
After shaping and semi drying the labu, they will then be smoothed and decorated by engraving. Although the body of the labu sayong will be a little hard because the surface will have been already semi dried, the craving artisan will help you in coming up with a unique creative design to decorate your labu sayong.
