What people are saying about our Linocut Workshop in Bali

Thank you Carolyn for this lovely description of our 2015 workshop in Ubud…

As you sketch and carve your image in the garden of ARMA Resort, the beauty of this magnificently

landscaped tropical paradise is an inspiration.

There are multi levels and layers of lush vegetation incorporating rice fields, lotus ponds, statues, streams and fountains. Beautiful vistas and the sound of running water wherever you wander. A very peaceful setting with a pool nearby where you can
cool off and enjoy afternoon tea in the shade.

We used an area attached to the ARMA Gallery for traditional Balinese arts. On Sunday morning, groups of children rehearse their Balinese dances nearby with parents watching on the sidelines …
just like ballet classes at home. Excellent planning meant that everything ran smoothly.
I learnt handburnishing and chine colle techniques as well as getting lots of tips from Shana on design and composition. A very supportive environment with flexibility to do your own thing each day, eg cooking  class, traditional Balinese painting  or the temple tour at dawn with Agung Rai himself, the
founder of the Agung Rai Museum of Arts (ARMA) and creator of the heavenly garden.

Comfortable, spacious air-conditioned rooms with wide porches plus delicious meals and friendly staff make this workshop a real delight. Highly recommended!
