Improving the Studio
Ketut's studio needs to improve. Conditions at the studio have gotten very difficult. We need better ventialation, more light, a place to rest, a good roof, So we are fundraising for a new building. Ketut, Joanie and Ketut's daughter Kadeck are preparing for a fund raising batik exhibition in Bali.
