More About This Experience

Calm & elegant, these elongated faces adorn the insides of Tiki bars and classy rooms. Made entirely from a single block of quality wood, they were symbols of luck and prosperity. Try unravelling the mystery behind them by carving one by yourself! The wood carving process is actually a pretty simple one! Simply draw, design, carve and finish! But the tough part is in how to get the carving right. Here's where the master will be able to guide you through every step of the way so your mask doesn't end up with a bigger eye or crooked mouth. Even then it wouldn't look too bad; the face is already pretty long ;) Please note that if you have selected an add on for pick up then we use local taxis.

Additional Information:

  • Workshop is conducted sitting on the floor so women should not wear skirts
  • It can be tiring to some so feel free to ask the host for as many breaks as necessary
  • This activity requires use of sharp chisels so maintaining personal safety is important
  • Exact pick-up location address along with map direction will be sent to your email instantly after booking
  • Be at the pick up location at the tour start time.

It would have been far easier to buy a mask from one of the shops along the street, save for the experience of meeting Kedar, Anil, and her aunt. We sat in the outdoor stairwell of her apartment building drinking tea and chatting about family, favorite foods, and cell phone bills. Kedar Dhanuik is a... Read more
