GAYA CAC WORKSHOPS


Building skills, exploring creativity, and tapping stimuli from all that is Bali…

2-WEEK WORKSHOPS:  intensive hands-on experiences

Our two-week workshops enable ceramic artists to focus and immerse: furthering their knowledge of a specific aspect of clay, while rejuvenating their creativity amid the energy of fellow artists and the inspiration of a cultural setting renowned for its exquisite artwork and culture.  Workshops vary widely in theme, instructor, firing style and focus, and our roster changes every year.  Typically workshop programs will comprise ten days of studio activity, 1-2 days of relevant excursions into the cultural wealth and natural beauty of Bali, and the opportunity to independently explore the nightlife (traditional and otherwise) of the artistic enclave of Ubud.  All lunches are catered family-style in the studio.

TUITION: USD $2200 inclusive of all studio materials, glazes and firings, catered lunches, welcome dinner, and excursions around the island. Inquire about our Early Bird discount, Student Scholarships, and Last-Minute rates.  We will assist in making recommendations and bookings for nearby hotels, bungalows or home-stays in convenient proximity to Gaya studio (accommodation is not included in tuition).

A GL takes on the responsibility of finding 7-10 workshop registrants, collecting tuition fees from each person, and communicating directly with Gaya CAC throughout the lead-up time to the actual workshop of choice.  In exchange, the Group Leader receives free tuition (including studio materials, lunches, excursions, and accommodation), as well as a per participant monetary incentive.
