On Saturday, August 31st 2019, we were invited by Warung Kebunku to arrange a workshop at their market event: Pasar Langsat. It was being held at Warung Kebunku, Jalan Langsat III No. 22, South Jakarta, surrounded by lush trees and nearby a very nice park. Pasar Langsat was a food market joined by food artisans who brought fresh produces, organic rice, tempeh, goat milk cheese, healthy and delicious goods like traditional sweets made from all natural ingredients (we had some!). There was no shortage on drinks either, they served coconut milk drink, kombucha, few types of fruit wine and the others.
I Want to Smell The Perfume partook in arranging a jersey yarn macrame bag workshop. Seven people joined us, all lovely and enthusiastic. The youngest participant was Amanda, a middle school student who was also joining muffin baking workshop that day.
We spent three hours to learn the macrame bag making. We started around 9 am, to make the simple knots. It ended at 12 pm and the participants finished their bags until the handle making. Congratulations! We had a tasty lunch (mie ayam or noodles with sautéed chicken and mushrooms, and a glass of fresh strawberry juice).
It was really fun! Thank you for participating! We’d like to thank Warung Kebunku as well for inviting us. We loved the Pasar Langsat and would be glad to visit the next ones.
