    Very obliging, patient, courteous, not too serious. A lighthearted class to impart an important part of the culture of Bali. Well worth doing

    Our instructor didn't speak very much English so the class was more show rather than tell but she was very kind and super patient. After a bit of showing and correcting, we finally caught on and the baskets we made were nice.
