7. Sacred Balinese offerings workshop - Ubud
For hundreds of years, Balinese families have passed down the ritual of daily offerings, called canang. Each day, the women create these small, hand-woven coconut-leaf baskets. The baskets contain the flower, fruit, rice and food offerings for the Hindu Deities that the women pray to each day.
The baskets can be rather simple to construct, or can involve a delicate, creative touch - there are many forms that canang can take. The offerings are inseparable from prayer in Hindu belief, as the purpose of the offering is to sustain and patronize the Gods - who are then more likely to respond to one’s prayers.
When you’re in Bali you will see hundreds of these daily offerings! This unique workshop will show you how to make them and give you the chance to learn more about this staple in Balinese culture.
