About the event
We are excited to be hosting on-going drop-in workshops throughout this highly popular fair! Join us and learn how to weave a Hawai'i-style floral crown called lei po'o!
Fri Sept 15th 4pm -11:00pm
Sat Sept 16th 9am - 11:00pm
Sun Sept 17th 9am - 7:00pm
Certified educator, conservation biologist and owner of Pua Le'a Floral, Julia will be teaching about the plants, Hawai'ian cultural contect and deep nature connection involved with lei-making. This is not your average floral crown!
Workshops are appropriate for all-ages & beginners (kids ages 6 and up) and guests will choose their own flowers and foliage from our flower bar to weave a half-size floral crown. All plants are sourced from Connecticut farms and lei are 100% bio-degradable for an eco-friendly art! Lei typically last 3-5 days if stored in the fridge when not worn.
*A portion of proceeds will be donated to community organizations helping to rebuild Lahaina, Maui after the devastating wildfires of early August.*
