Ancient Hawaiians understood the significance of creating strong cordage, or rope. Cordage was used to bind and lash homes, canoes, and tools in old Hawai`i.

Join Hawaiian Ethnobotanist, Cathy Davenport, for a hands-on workshop in cordage making, on Saturday, August 6, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Maui Nui Botanical Gardens.

Those interested in attending should email info@mnbg.org to request a registration form. Space is limited and a workshop fee applies.

The Maui Nui Botanical Gardens is a non-profit organization that works to conserve Hawaiian plants and cultural heritage. The Maui Nui Botanical Gardens is located at 150 Kanaloa Avenue in Kahului, across from the War Memorial Football Stadium.
