I had a good time with this class. I have no skill with carving and ended up with a half decent souvenir! I will say this probably isn’t the best to do in large groups, I was by myself and pretty much needed the artisan to help me the entire time. But it was fun!

Collection and return worked without any problems. The carving workshop itself was in an open air area in the shade. There you could choose between different motifs, I decided on a traditional Balinese mask. Worked out better than expected, the toutor was very helpful and was always ready with tips. Everyone present spoke fluent English, so communication was not a problem. Would definitely do it again if the opportunity arises.
