Have you ever wanted to meet an artist and take part in a workshop where the artist sits with the participants and teaches them her craft? A Kakadu Workshop is just that….a wonderful and unique experience. Meet Reut Shahar in her workshop and hear about how she got started and how she built a well known brand.
At Kakadu they believe that everyone is a born artist.
Kakadu artwork is painted wood in specific Kakadu colors. The art uses shapes, animals and figures from nature.
Meet Reut at the Kakadu Studio
Meet Reut the world renowned Kakadu artist and see some of her recent work. Kakadu is located in the beautiful Ella Valley in Moshav Tzafririm (near Beit Shemesh).
Gallery visits & hands on workshop for the whole family
Families can reserve a private Kakadu experience where they are guided by Reut to create a Kakadu inspired masterpiece. This is a great activity for grandparents and parents together with their kids.
Visitors can choose from place mats, to decorative objects, coasters, Hamsas and can even design floor mats if they request it in advance. The wooden carpets are internationally patented. Each piece is “finished” off by Reut herself and each person walks away with a beautiful piece of art in the Kakadu style.
Once you have completed your individual pieces, why not work together on a group piece – a wooden rug – a unique Kakadu product to use as an eye-catching floor runner or stunning wall-hanging in your home.
The tour ends with a visit to the Kakadu factory store.
