Our session starts at 2pm with an introduction to our bamboo house design, freshly made Jamu and Balinese snacks, followed by a demonstration of tools and safety induction. You will then be given your tools and can choose from either working from a cutlery template or to design your piece from scratch. We will be using hand-crafting tools to fashion and hone our designs individually and learn techniques for creating the curves and angles required. Our pieces will be "finished" with a natural FDA approved food-safe sealer for you to take home.
I am Australian mother building an inclusive disability community project for my 17 year old daughter and other children with special needs in Bali. I am passionate about natural building and design, experimentation, raising awareness and sharing skills that can make building bamboo homes sustainable, affordable and accessible. I have been learning about bamboo craft and construction for the last three years through this construction project. Supri Yanto, co-designer of our bamboo house here in Denpasar leads the workshop. He is a skilled craftsman and recycler, cob builder, designer and imaginator who enjoys sharing his skills with others and meeting new cultures. His aim is to build “everything from garbage” ...
