Nothing says “exciting” and “holidays” like the return of From Bali to Us to Philadelphia.

Once again, batik artist and educator Laura Cohn opens her magical Indonesian bazaar, art show, and special events for a limited time: November 2 to December 24. This year we’ve returned to a previous location — 8514 Germantown Avenue – that is spacious and in the heart of Chestnut Hill.

More than ever, unique special activities enliven the show, with opportunities for learning through taste, touch, dancing, music-making, and more. This year, From Bali to Us offers a particularly diverse selection of Indonesian treasures, all hand-picked by Cohn herself in a recent trip to Indonesia, crafted by talented artisans there, and imported directed by Cohn from their villages to Philadelphia.
