Hello! My name is Gusti Ayu and I am a Balinese woman with a dream to offer people the chance to sample the extraordinary craft culture of the native Balinese. I began polishing the silver jewelry my Father created when I was 10 years old, just like my brothers before me. Over the years, I went from being a silver jewelry maker to a teacher offering silver classes to visitors to Bali.
Now, in my own gallery in Ubud, I offer people the opportunity to experience all of the major crafts found in Bali- silver jewelry making, wood and stone carving, batik, classic Balinese painting, ceremonial offerings (temple offerings), Balinese dance, fruit carving, lontar weaving, kite making, puppet making- I hope I remember them all!

    Fabulous hosts

    The day at this little craft learning place was one of the most enjoyable days we have spent in Bali. And we will be returning to learn more on our next trip. Highly recommend

    Great experience!

    This class was very fun! I would go back on a future visit to take some of Ayu's other classes as well :) the center is very peaceful and beautiful and at the end you have a georgous batik of your own creation!

    My friend and I really enjoyed taking this class. It was not too long so it didn't take up our whole day and we got to use our creativity. It was nice to be able to take home our art work and everyone was friendly.

    I loved the class (Batik class). The instructor was absolutely lovely and the food was delicious. I made a beautiful picture of a flower that I will cherish forever. Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon.
