Wood Carving Class

Experience the artistry of Balinese wood carving with Usada Bali during a visit to the studio of one of Indonesia’s most esteemed wood carving artisans.

Widely acclaimed as one of the greatest living Balinese artists, revered for his ornate wooden Garuda statues and impressive sculptures. Nyoman, the artist’s son, will personally guide you through this remarkable experience.

Upon arrival, Nyoman will lead you on a guided tour through the artist’s captivating gallery and museum. Marvel at an array of carved mythological sculptures, intricately designed wooden panels, and exquisite Balinese furniture, each accompanied by the fascinating stories of their creation. You’ll also have the exclusive chance to observe local artisans at work, providing a glimpse into the studio’s environment and the creative processes influenced by the teachings of the esteemed master.

Delve deeper into this ancient art form by participating in a woodcarving class held in the gallery, offering a breathtaking view of the surrounding nature. Under Nyoman’s expert guidance, using a chisel and mallet, you’ll be instructed to sculpt a wooden relief, allowing your creativity to flourish.

To culminate our visit, Nyoman will join us for a picnic and discussion, sharing anecdotes from his past and enthralling us with tales of how his family propagated woodcarving teachings within the local community.
