Artist residency in Bali - backstrap weaving class

Backstrap weaving class with Komang Darmini from Ubud traditional weaving class in Pejeng Kangin, near Ubud. A warm welcome in her modest weaving studio with a young coconut for drinks. Komang is an artist in weaving and works with cotton and natural dyed yarns.

She already made a start with a warp which we finished together After warping we dress the backstrap loom for weaving. At the end of the class she prepped the loom so I can take it home with me for more practice.

It was a special experience to be taught at her home and see her beautiful handwoven pieces that she creates. If you are going to Ubud and interested in weaving, please join Komang for a backstrap weaving class!
