Anyone interested in weaving, batik or fabric painting would be wise to go to Bali with Barb, who spent 12 years designing batik and several more sharing her best of Bali as a tour leader in this remarkable place. Your appreciation of fiber art will increase a thousand-fold. The trip was fantastic from beginning to end!
