We had an amazing time with Iwayan Kar. He picked us up from our hotel to show us around a local market. He took us to his home, where we learned how to make coconut oil in the presence of his family. We then prepared a curry-based meal which we enjoyed together. It was a wonderful time and the best meal of our entire trip. We left with our coconut oil. It's an incredible moment, not to be missed!

The studio is in a remote location so you will most likely need a taxi as the studio does not do collection. The experience itself was so fun, though I realise I have little talent in silverworking myself. The teachers help you a lot and take your creation to a whole other level!

Amazing experience! We got the jewelry we wanted to and the process was fun! Some other participants even got to include pearls, so bring those if you want to. The instructors also helped during the process and made sure everyone got their wanted piece of jewelry!

We really enjoyed this activity, the teachers were nice and we were very pleased with the final result. We did the 10am course and were the only ones there.

Excellent experience. Very professional and well organised. The owner of this experience is so friendly and funny you can't help but enjoy yourself.
