Bali is a place like no other, an enchanting island with a sprit that will be part of each stitch you make long after you return home from our amazing retreat with the incredible Danny Amazonas.

The island of Bali has a calming and special energy that you will find hard to resist.   There is this perfect combination of friendly people, natural attractions, a great variety of things to see and do, a year-round pleasant climate and a very special captivating appeal.  Our 5 star resort is second to none and the staff is exceedingly gracious, there to pamper you and make certain that you will feel spoiled beyond your wildest imagination.
​​

You will spend 7 nights in a luxurious tropical suite with panoramic views, flower drenched tubs, a beautiful spa, amazing food. and the most important, a relaxing yet sophistacated atmosphere that will get your creative juices flowing for your classes with Danny. In addition to the workshop Christopher and Deb have planned tours and visits which will enhance your island stay. Our resort is in the village of Ubud, considered Bali's art and craft center.  The inspiration here is amazing and the shopping, no less than incredible. 

In addition to your workshops with Danny, we've planned time for you to make your own batik fabrics and will also be taking you to the world famous FABRIC STREET in Bali's capital city, Denpasar.  Here, we've negotiated special pricing for you to purchase batiks for around $2 a meter.  You will also find almost every other kind of fabric conceivable - it's an entire street dedicated to fabric and quite amazing.  You will have the opportunity to enjoy a cooking class - Balineses style, a relaxing spa treatment and so much more during our week together.  Our fabulous retreat hotel offers daily high tea for your enjoyment as well as daily cultural crafts such as wood-carving and cultural heritage talks.

The work of Danny Amazonas has been exhibited through out the world and he is considered  one of the  greatest textile artist of today.  Danny is outgoing and energizing as well as eager to teach you his own method of "freehand patchwork" in such a way that you will be able to continue the process on different projects once you are home.  He's designing a variation of one of his most popular pieces for us and will include a kit with pre-fused fabrics for our particpants.
