Makhampom is known to Thais as a famous drama group that uses theatre, puppets, stage performances, traditional music and mime to help develop communities by encouraging local people to exchange opinions and ideas and take part in community projects. At the same time, Makhampom also trains local people and youths in the community to produce communication tools themselves. Whether you call it a large family, a nursery, a university or just a place that brings together people who love drama, Makhampom’s specialty is drama and the creative arts.
Charm Learn Studio, a ceramic art co-op, was founded in 2012 by three passionate designers, Thanita Yothawong, Natthapol Wannaporn and Chanchai Boriboon in Bangkok. Their signature product is a ceramic lunch-box set “Pin-To”, which has clinched various recognitions, such as the PM Award 2017, the DeMark Award 2017 and the Good Design Award 2017. In 2020, Natthapol Wannaporn opened a branch in Chiang Mai, his hometown, under the name Charm Learn Studio CNX. Located in San Kamphaeng, a district well-known for ceramics, the studio is aimed at those who are interested in ceramics, offering a space for artisans and enthusiasts to work and share their ideas. Through events, workshops and residency programs, Charm Learn Studio’s vision is to create a community space for artists and craft makers as well as elevate ceramics as an artform by itself. The studio also cooperates with the Chiang Mai City of Craft and Folk Arts initiative, and Chiang Mai Design Week by TCDC.
