On arrival in Bali we will be met by or Bali Friend, John, an expat from Canberra. John will look after and guide us for the next two weeks.
Our first week is about batiks with exclusive visits to shops crammed with material and also to factories to see how they are produced. We will visit the Bali Safari & Marine park where you will enjoy a full lunch and have the opportunity to get up personal with an orang-utan. Be truly amazed by the spectacular Bail Agung theatre show. Not to be missed.
We will then travel, via our own mini bus and dedicated driver, to the tranquil seaside hotel at Candi Dassa. Candi Dassa will be our sea side home for the remainder of our retreat. We will have plenty of opportunity to sew our wonderful batik purchases. Many project ideas will be available or bring your own patterns.
There will be plenty of time sew or to just relax at this magical place. We have brand new basic Singer Sewing Machines and an airconditioned workroom.
A visit to the ancient village of Tenganan gives an insight into the Balinese culture and also the Ujung Water palace. A highlight of Candi Dassa is a fish and turtle viewing morning via an outrigger canoe, with an option for snorkelling.
We finish our trip at Jimbaran Beach with a farewell dinner while watching the sun set. Then sadly we will be taken to the airport by our driver for the return flight to Australia.
