Windmill Workshop!

One of the most wonderful thing about the Balinese culture is the ingenious way the Balinese can use natural materials to make beautiful objects. Ketemu harnesses this valuable skill the Balinese possess in this very workshop. This windmill making workshop is like no-other. It uses “ental” dried palm leaves with a papery texture. There are dozens of things that the Balinese use this leaf for. One of the most noted use is in the “lontar” manuscripts where sacred Hindhu scripture and images are being encrypted onto these leaves and bound together.

We thought this material would be perfect for our windmill workshop with the students as it is a reminder of traditional wisdom and the passing of knowledge. Folded into the form of the windmill, the children get to inject an element of play into transforming this material.
