    The talent and creativity of this team of artists is impressive. They are endearing and create a charming down to earth experience working with native materials and creating super interesting items that are great gifts or fun souveneirs and memorabilia. Our family loved it. We were surprised by how engaged we became with the hands on projects and the great items we came away with, The team there was super helpful, friendly and resourceful.

    Amazing get away for an afternoon! Host and his family and all the people working here are really nice and you can see they love doing what they are doing. The surroundings couldnt be better, its just a lovely garden with bamboo furnitures and stuff. Recommended for everyone, I for one never really did anything like it, not really a handyman here, but I loved this afternoon, time flew by. Bring some snacks and drinks with you and enjoy!

    We spent the morning at the bamboo workshop which was a wonderful experience! The owner of Taboo is so lovely and he opens up his home to you for a tour. It was amazing to see all that he makes from Bamboo.After a brief tour and explanation of how to prepare bamboo you are then able to make your own bamboo souvenir. Everything from cups, to welcome signs to bookmarks. The staff is on site to assist and “beautify” the souvenirs for you. Overall the experience was wonderful, and bringing a homemade souvenir back with me is really special!

    Really fun and hands on. My wife picked a cooking class earlier in the trip, and I picked this... Really great experience! Tan is very knowledgeable about all of the different types of local bamboo, and extremely creative on how to use it. He cares about the environment and how bamboo can lessen the carbon footprint if used in lieu of traditional wood. You will get the opportunity to build your own bamboo creation with his guidance. I would highly recommend.

    I spent the afternoon with Mr. Tan and he taught me a lot about bamboo! Mr. Tan is extremely knowledgeable and keen to teach. Really interesting to see how bamboo is used in construction and as a readily available resource.Mr. Tan can show you how to make a variety of things, and his level of craftsmanship is outstanding.Anyone with even a slight interest in engineering materials/carpentry/DIY should definitely give it a go!
