learn something new

Close to Borododur and Yogyakarta, our district has a well-known history of both culinary and artistic creativity. Some favourites have offered to run short, hands-on, half-day courses exclusively for any ‘Sitinggil’ visitors who are interested.

Here’s some examples of courses available. Please book a minimum of 1 week in advance.

Both Sitinggil and Treehouse have gardens full of fresh food. Locavores, we implement farm-to-garden dining as much as possible.

Join the morning harvest, and learn to prepare and cook healthy vegan dishes and drinks-straight from the garden.

ECO-PRINT, a local Salatiga company, pioneered this leaf-printing technique, using natural dying processes to create the ultimate ‘green’ apparel range. This course will take you through the process, from start to finish.
