Bali Wood Carving

MAS VILLAGE located just 6 km south of Ubud is famous for woodcarvings. Ida Bagus Anom, on Jl Raya Mas is a friend of mine and a famous mask carver. Anom is fluent in English, regularly hosts workshops and classes on the art of mask making. Visitors regularly frequent his home where he has a woodcarving workshop and also a showroom.
Across the street on JI. Raya Mas, in Mas. is the famous wood carving gallery of on Njana Tilem Gallery, the son of Ida Bagus Tilem, one of Bali's legendary wood carvers. Beautiful but very expensive. Ask to see the private collection.
Other galleries include Baris, Bidadari and Tantra.
Other wood carving villages include: Tegallalang, Pujung, and Sebatu, which is north of Ubud. It is a great area to meet woodcarvers. I would just drive up the road and visit the shops that look interesting to you.
