About the event

For hundreds of years, lei-making in Hawai'i has been a symbol of showing love, deep care and honoring to people in your family, community and even cherished animals and plants. When a lei is offered (either neck lei or head lei) it is a powerful yet gentle symbol of the aloha (deep love and care) one person has for another.  It is also a song of gratitude and acknowledgement to the plants themselves, in appreciation of the gifts they give in granting permission to be harvested and used by humans.

In this workshop, you will learn to weave a beginner level Hawai'i-style floral crown called lei po'o- to either gift to someone or wear and enjoy for yourself. Both are acceptable in the lei culture of modern Hawai'i.

Julia is a certified educator, naturalist and owner of Puale'a Floral and will guide you through the steps. Be prepared to go on a journey - lei-making will ask your dedication and persistence!

Featuring a not-to-be missed local & seasonally sourced flower and plant bar, this unique floral workshop is best for ages 13 and up.  All materials are included in ticket price and lei last 3-5 days with light wear and storage in a plastic bag in the fridge.
