BALINESE LONTAR DRAWING WORKSHOP

35 $

An unusual and fun workshop and a great opportunity to create your own balinese souvenir in an enchanting scenery.

Lontar is a kind of palm tree that is common to the Indonesian islands. Like bamboo, lontar leaves are used for artistic weaving and as thatch. Balinese artisans have honed the skill of the carving on the lontar.

Using sharp knives and chisels to craft words and images that come to life like a natural ink-like ash.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

You engraved illustrations on lontar leaf with an iron stylus known as pangrupak with the help of preliminary sketches.

Once the illustrations have been completed the incisions are blackened with burnt candlenut oil.

When the excess is wiped off, the blackened incisions stand out from the colour of the leaf.

Program duration

09:00 - 12:00 or 13:00 - 17:00

Optional Balinese buffet lunch

If you wish to enjoy the atmosphere a bit longer while tasting balinese food, don’t hesitate to let us know at the time of booking. (Additional 10 USD per person)

Optional Rice Fields Walk

If you want to stay longer, go for a beautiful walk in the countryside with our local guide. Please let us know upon booking (Additional 10 USD per person).

The scenery is magic to find inspiration! A brilliant creative workshop during our stay in Bali that allowed us to learn more about the Hindu religion and make nice memories to exhibit at home !!
