Thank you Natalie for taking me into your bamboo world for a day! YouÍre a beautiful soul and admire what you have done for your daughter and the local community! I loved the hands-on experience you gave us with bamboo and the opportunity to build a real piece of furniture with local bamboo craftsmen. The bamboo home you built and host the workshop in, is a true testament of your commitment to sustainable use of bamboo.

This was one of a kind experience for me and my two children aged 11 and 8 years old. They had hands on experience with local Indonesians and Natalie on how to use bamboo in building housing but also objects such us forks, bowls, cups. We had lots of fun.

Had a great time talking about Natalie's bamboo home. I was very curious about how it was built and how to work with the bamboo. Natalie was so informative and she shared the process of how she built her bamboo home from an empty land. Even though I had to leave earlier for personal matter, I had a great time during event. Thank you!
