From Jakarta, Bogor can be reached for about one hour. When the Dutch colonialism era, Bogor is a capital city of Indonesia. There is a special craft in Bogor that makes this city more unique. It is wayang golek.

Wayang golek is one of the most popular wood puppets in West Java. I will bring you to the wayang golek craftsman studio. You will listen to the history and culture of wayang golek in Bogor. Then, you will learn how to make wayang golek which has a long process. You will paint your own wayang golek and play with colours. Of course, you can bring your wayang golek home later. If we have time, we can play gamelan music together. It is a traditional musical accompaniment for wayang golek performance.

*I am available to accompany you to reach Bogor from Jakarta by train. I will recommend you to meet at the nearest train station to your hotel. No extra free.

**If the experience is not opened on the date you want, please give me a request by message

Hello, my name is Evi. I was born in Jakarta, and now I live in Bogor for six years. I have travelled a lot around Indonesia. Ask me if you want to know about the most recommended beach, diving spot, Indonesian gastronomy, or anything you want to know about my country.

After I graduated from the Faculty of Humanities for Indonesian Studies, I started my career as a teacher. Now, I decided to resign and be a host of Airbnb Experiences for fulltime. I really enjoy my job as a local expert host now while I am pursuing a scholarship for my master degree next year.

We will conduct the workshop in a tiny house of wayang golek local craftsman. It is around 20 minutes from Bogor Station. A lot of wayang golek models are displayed as your inspiration to make your own wayang golek. We will play gamelan music instrument after making wayang golek.

Please do not miss this exciting opportunity to see this cultural experience. It is hands on and you get to take your puppet home. The history and stories, lovely puppets that you see made from a pile of wood to the exquisite puppets all in the one workshop. The opportunity to play gamelan was moving, even though I am NOT a musician. The hospitality was excellent and Bogor is a lovely place away from Jakarta. Evi is a lovely host and looks after you well.

We had an awesome and immersive cultural experience at the workshop. The introduction to the story, background and making of Wayang Golek puppets ignited our interest in making one for our own. We spent hours painting the puppets, and we love how we experience art and craftsmanship in the process with the family. We also had a chance to play local instruments together. Joyful day spent! Strongly recommended for anyone who love a fun and creative local cultural experience!

I strongly recommend this experience! Evi was a wonderful host, knowledgable about the topic and a great storyteller. The puppet maker and his family were very friendly and welcoming. Besides painting the puppet, I saw (the process of making) lots of other puppets, learned about the story of Rama and Shinta and could try to play the music that accompanies Wayang puppet shows. A nice lunch and pisang goreng topped it off - thank you, Evi!

This is a great experience. You will meet a friendly guide, who is knowledgable, passionate, and very relaxed. She an Yudith went out of their way to share their culture with me. All the craftsman who you interact with are very kind. I felt like I learned so much on my trip. My puppet is beautiful, but make sure you are willing to be patient with the activity. It will result in a more beautiful puppet. Evi loves to eat good food and knows about travel opportunities in other parts of Java. I would recommend this experience to anyone and if I make it back to Java, I hope to travel with Evi and Yudith again.

This was an interesting experience I would not have been able to find on my own. Proud of Evi for picking up on these local crafts and sharing it with public :) Enjoyed the knowledge and conversation shared through the trip with Evi as well. Would be great if the price was lower though.
