2019 Bali Textiles Retreat

27 July – 3 August 2019
8 days/7 nights from $2295 per person twin share

Join us for a glorious week of creativity, community, inspiration and immersion into Indonesian textiles and culture, all while based in a stunning 4-star, riverside resort in Ubud.

Highlights include visits to village workshops specialising in double ikat (geringsing), weft ikat (endek) and supplementary weft ikat (songket), batik, natural dyeing and wood carving along with opportunities to meet the skilled artists and watch them at work. We’ll enjoy hands-on activities including a batik and natural dye class under the guidance of master dyers, a weaving workshop taught by a women’s traditional weaving group and a basketry class during which we’ll use palm leaves to craft a small basket. Other highlights include a seminar on the role of Indonesian textiles in daily and ceremonial life, a specialist textile market and an interactive tour with an organisation that supports and educates marginalised girls and women while preserving and promoting Bali’s cultural and handcraft heritage.

We’ll delve into Balinese culture – visiting temples and experiencing a Hindu water purification ceremony. We’ll learn to make traditional offerings, visit a traditional home and a world-class museum showcasing Indonesian masks and puppets.  We’ll also take the time to explore the island’s lush landscape and enjoy Bali’s famous warm hospitality and exquisite cuisine.
