What you'll do
Right outside Honolulu proper, in an area known as Waialae Iki, together we'll pick the ti leaves and prepare the leaves. Processing the leaf material is quick and easy. Once the leaves are all prepared, I will give a quick demonstration to get you started. We will take the process step by step and before you know it, you'll get in to a rhythm. I'll show you how to finish the lei and you'll be ready to wear it or give it as a gift!
Time to make a lei, wear a lei, and give a lei of your own. We will be making a local favorite, ti leaf lei, or lei la'i as it is said in 'olelo Hawai'i, or Hawaiian language. I learned this style of lei as a kid from my family. It will be fun and easy for you to learn. You'll even be able to take it home with you as a gift for a loved one. Come learn how to make your own lei la'i! Just show up as you are! All the materials you need will be made available for you, or for you to pick yourself. Mahalo and aloha!

Where you'll be
The location where we will hold the lei class is at my childhood home on the slopes of Waialae overlooking the beautiful pacific. We'll have great views for you to take pictures with your lei that you will make!
