    “Explore your passion with I NYOMAN TEDUN : the master of carving”

    Why choose Us?
    Fruits are beautiful in their own right, but when they are carved or simply arranged in different ways, they look exquisite. Carving fruit is a wonderful talent. We come across to see that fruit arts are displayed during marriage and festival. Every year, competitions are held to encourage budding artists to display their imagination in the form of fruit art.

    The art of carving foods is actually an Eastern custom that has been adopted by many creative food preparers around the world. In Thailand and Japan fruits carving is considered part of the presentation of the meal. In Bali, normally fruit carving has almost the same function and shape such as flowers, plants, and animals, but what makes it has slight difference is in terms of its peculiar shape, namely PUPPET CHARACTERS. It needs special skills to make into the details. The details take time and energy-waste to create an outstanding product. The stunning designs that could be created make the fruit a center of attention when you serve your guests.

    One of the programs in Youth Conference is a workshop of fruit carving, managed by I Nyoman Tedun. He is one of talented cooks and lecturers in STPBI Institute and born with talent and grew up in artistic atmosphere of Ubud – Bali. His involvement on art and culinary was first noticed on the national ice carving competition in 1987 as the fist winner. He regularly attends and becomes the winner of carving festivals in Japan, USA, Thailand, Melbourne, Dubai and many more. During the Youth Conference, he will present his expertise and judge the carving challenge.


    Why choose Us?
    Flower arrangement is an art, which depends completely on the creativity of an individual. One taste might be different or relatively based on the individual’s sense of beauty. Commonly, flower arrangement is utilized for wedding decoration, hand and table bouquet and many others. Bali is rich of various flowers. There are many sides of Balinese cultural activities using flowers as the material for instances: the offerings in their religious aspects and the decorations. The Water Lilly, Lotus, Lilly, Orchid, Frangipani, Ixora, and Gardenia are commonly found in Bali. They are naturally grown and some of them are cultivated and developed into flowers arrangement products.

    The art of flower arrangement now is put into concern in the workshop. With the talented tutor with years of experiences, this workshop will educate and provide you with the insight of how to make Balinese flower arrangement. Afterwards, there will be also a competition to decide the best taste of flower arrangement.


    We will take you to get involved in the unforgettable colossal of Kecak Dance. A visit to the island of Bali will not be complete without watching some of the most captivating traditional performances the island has to offer. Aside from Barong and Janger Dances, another dazzling performance you definitely don’t want to miss is the colossal Kecak Dance, one of Balinese artistic masterpieces in the form of a dance and musical drama.

    What makes this dance particularly unique is that the drama uses no artificial backdrop, nor musical instrument. The focus is entirely on the concentric circles of about 30-40 men, bare-chested, wearing only distinct Balinese sarongs sitting cross-legged around a set of torches in the center.

    Taken from the Hindu epic Ramayana, it tells the story of Prince Rama and his rescue of Princess Sita, who has been kidnapped by the evil King of Lanka. The main characters are Rama, Sita, Rahwana, Lakshmana, Hanoman and Sugriwa. The storyline generally starts from when prince Rama goes to the woods with Sita, his wife, and Lakshmana, his brother. There, Ravana kidnaps Sita and imprisons her in his castle. Rama seeks for help and sends Lakshmana to find his friend, Sugriwa, the King of the Monkey Kingdom. Afterwards, Sugriwa sends Hanoman to check Sita in Rahwana’s palace and Rama finally begins the battle. A dramatic scene is portrayed when Hanoman is captured by Rahwana’s troops and put inside a circle of fire to burn him alive. Instead of burning Hanoman, he remains unharmed and breaks out only to burn Rahwana’s palace by using his burnt tail. Thus, begin the battle between the two forces.

    The participants of the Youth Conference will feel the unique of being in part of the dance. They will be trained by the professionals and perform the dance during Gala Dinner.
