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!

We really enjoyed the Canang Sari class with Ayu. She had great knowledge about the history of making the offerings and how each offering related to a particular ceremony. We had fun but also felt we got to partake in an important spiritual practice. Thankyou so much. Tammie
An amazing, informative and cultural experience
I had a wonderful time participating in this session! Ayu was incredibly approachable and patient during our time together. She was more than willing to answer any questions I had for her about the history of offerings and included a lot of that information during our time making them. Everything was very well prepared and the area we worked in was beautiful and creative. I would highly recommend this experience.
