Event Details

This 2 day workshop will teach the traditional Balinese Ogoh-Ogoh Mask Making technique from Bali. It is suitable for creatives and community leaders interested in learning basic 3D mask making skills. 

It will run from 9.30am to 1.30pm on both days, and attendees should come to both sessions.

Ogoh-ogoh is a big puppet (2 meters - 5 meters) made out of wood, bamboo and paper. Its form is usually a beast or scary creature, made according to local Bali story or from Ramayana & Mahabharata. It is made by communities to celebrate Balinese new year, with parade, dance and Balinese traditional music and burnt.

I Made Sutama is a Balinese artist living and working in Vilnius, Lithuania. He studied traditional art (wood carving) from age 12, then continued to Art High School SMK N 1 Sukawati. After that, he went to Art Institute of Denpasar Bali.

From 2005 he worked professionally as a “ogoh-ogoh” creator.  I Made Sutama believes making “ogoh-ogoh” it’s not just about creating art, it’s about working together with the community, it is about sharing ideas and energy with all the community members.
