Participants will learn how to weave a lei poʻo (head lei), peʻahi (fan), and a hanging ʻumeke (basket) with cultural practitioners Uʻi Kahue and Mario Siatris.

The workshop will be held on Saturday, March 21 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and costs $65 to attend, or $40 for current garden members.

Space is limited. Call (808) 249-2798 for reservations.
