The next time you are in Bali, ex­pe­ri­ence the Green Vil­lage for your­self with th­ese tours and work­shops

GREEN VIL­LAGE TOUR

Fancy see­ing the Green Vil­lage for your­self but can’t rent one of the houses through Airbnb? You can still book a per­sonal tour of the com­mu­nity. Th­ese tours take vis­i­tors in­side some of the houses, though which one you visit will de­pend on whether they are rented out at the time.

BAM­BOO FAC­TORY TOUR

Ibuku’s Bam­boo Fac­tory is where de­sign­ers, crafts­men and builders use a com­bi­na­tion of an­cient and mod­ern tech­niques to make bam­boo fit for use in the stu­dio’s grav­ity-de­fy­ing struc­tures. Book a visit to see for your­self how ar­ti­sans treat, cut and craft bam­boo into fur­ni­ture and, even­tu­ally, houses.

JOHN HARDY JEW­ELLERY FAC­TORY

A short drive from the Green Vil­lage is John Hardy’s jew­ellery fac­tory, which you can visit by ap­point­ment to see the open-air de­sign cen­tre and watch jewellers craft ear­rings, neck­laces and more from con­cept to com­ple­tion.

KUL KUL FARM

A much-loved part of the Green Vil­lage com­pound is Kul Kul Farm, a per­ma­cul­ture farm run by Elora Hardy’s brother, Orin, which can be vis­ited by ap­point­ment. The farm pro­duces an as­sort­ment of healthy or­ganic food and runs a va­ri­ety of work­shops on top­ics rang­ing from eco-friendly farm­ing to mak­ing herbal medicines and es­sen­tial oils.

CLASSES AND WORK­SHOPS

For any­one look­ing to get hands-on, Ibuku also runs a series of prac­ti­cal classes, in­clud­ing a three-day bam­boo con­struc­tion work­shop dur­ing which you get to de­sign a bam­boo ar­chi­tec­tural model and then build it at real scale.
