Many people believe that traveling in Bali gives them many lessons. Some of them get the lessons from traveling to remote places, living with the locals, and mingling with nature. Yet some others get them from attending these fun classes and workshops:

Threads of Life

Although wearing textile products in daily life, we don’t really know how those goods are made. All we know is they are made in a factory. Put some materials in a silo and—voila—sheets of fabrics are conjured. But how they are really made? A class at Thread of Life, Ubud, is going to supply you with such knowledge. Since 1998, the gallery has conducted a weaving class and given people knowledge on how the Balinese traditional fabric is made. It does not only supply the tourist with knowledge, but it has also helped the locals improve their economy.

Jenggala Keramik Bali

Everywhere in Bali, you’ll see ceramic arts exhibited in front of art shops. Well, you can learn to make one at Jenggala Keramik Bali, Jalan Uluwatu II, Jimbaran. At the workshop, you’ll get to make your own ceramic creations—mugs, bowls, plates, cups, and saucers. Your artwork is gonna be burnt at Jenggala’s kiln and ready in 4-5 days. You can also bring your kids to learn how to paint ceramic wares. After the workshop, you’re gonna think differently about plates and mugs.

Bali Makeup School

Bali Makeup School your beauty Center and in order to always provide you the best quality service we open a new Lash Lift Treatment & Courses. •••••••••••••••••••••••• ’ ? Everything You Need To Know About Lash Lifts (And Why They’re Better Than Lash Extensions) “ Reference : ELLE Magazine” Sometimes I opt for a strip of falsies. And before I go on a long vacation, I get lash extensions. Extensions are especially addicting they add volume, curl, and length without the fuss of glue and self application. Plus, no one can even tell you have them on since silk or mink individual lashes are bonded at the root of your natural ones. Makeup takes only a couple of minutes because your face already looks done-up upon waking. But, in my personal experience, they can come at a price. When I’ve tried extensions, my lashes were left thin, brittle, and even shorter than before. On top of that, it’s tiring to have to be extra conscious not to rub my eyes, sleep on my side, use a sleeping mask, use mascara, or a number of other no-nos. Just as I was about to accept defeat and a lifetime of sad lashes, I got introduced to lash lifts. They give you the best of both worlds: You get the semi-permanent lift and curl of extensions while keeping your natural lashes damage-free. ••••••••••••••••••••••• A lash lift is like a perm for your lashes. Like old-school perms from the ’80s, lash lifts set the shape of your natural lashes using a chemical solution. “A lift is essentially what your lash would be doing with a really good mechanical curler, so [giving] a nice shape upward and a realistic curl,” Buhler said. There is no preparation necessary. “The only thing that we recommend is if you want a more dramatic result, then going on something like a lash serum to grow your lashes as long as possible is a great option,” Buhler suggewsted,”But we can work with any lash type.” You can customize your results. The first step during a session is to consult with your lash artist, who will ask you questions about your goals and style (for example, whether or not you wear mascara ••••••••••••••••••••• #lashlift #balilashlift #lashlifttreatment

Many YouTube channels can give you lessons about makeup. But, in many aspects, an “offline” class is the best. While in Bali, you can enroll in one of the workshops at Bali Makeup School, Jalan Pantai Berawa No. 99, Tibubeneng. The makeup school offers two programs: makeup artistry and beauty workshops. The makeup artistry workshops will give you sufficient knowledge about… applying make up, while the latter will give you lessons on creating your makeup using environment-friendly raw materials.

L’Atelier Parfum et Créations

If you’re looking for a unique experience, perhaps you should enroll at one of the workshops of L’Atelier Parfum et Créations at Ritz Carlton Nusa Dua. L’Atelier’s workshops will let you combine substances, most of which are inspired by the fragrant aroma of Indonesia plants and flowers, to produce your own personalized perfume that is most likely “the only” one in the world. Please visit L’Atelier’s website to book a class.

Thank you Jana and Laura for coming to our Bar Soap Class. They make all natural bar soaps in our workshop. Jana put some rose clay and activated bamboo charcoal for the colorants and did some cool vertical layer design. Laura put some annatto seed powder to her soaps and add corn flowers on top of it. They also have some essential oils for their soaps. Hope both of you enjoyed the class and the soaps! #soapmakingclassindonesia #soapmakingclassbali #soapclassindonesia #soapclassbali #naturalskincare #naturalsoap #soapmaking #bali #baliactivities #activitiesinbali #goingbacktonature #learnhowtosoap #balisoapclass #kelassabunindonesia #kelassabunbali #sabunalami #belajarbuatsabun #workshopbali #workshopdenpasar #workshopubud #workshopsanur #workshopcanggu #kelaskosmetik
