HomeThings to do in Bali

Shadow puppets are a traditional form of entertainment in Bali which originated from Java. Shadow puppet performances, or "Wayang", are often accompanied by a Gamelan musical orchestra in order to tell a story. In this special one day class, carve and paint a shadow puppet from leather while learning about the form and function of the most important puppets. First, we make a sketch of the puppet you'd like to create on leather - you can either copy a design we have, or make your own. You will draw out the different parts of the puppet, including the face, its arms, and body. Then, we use a hammer and chisel to carve out the shape and colour the shape using acrylic paint. Finally, we attach the sticks and string to the appropriate parts of the puppet so that the puppet can move. You now have your own masterpiece to show your family and friends! Availability: Every day at 9.30am
