Some crafts studios in Mandalay

We visited some more crafts studios, this time near Mandalay. There was a large weaving enterprise with many looms making very elaborate items, plus all the backup to wind the silk, and do some dyeing. I think these places also are schools for training people. Oddly in one corner of this place there was someone cleaning and trimming fish. There was a lot of sculpturing - some of large items.  There were several artists with a drawing style using brushes and other tools with ink, where they smushed around the ink rapidly to make nice pictures - see video below.
