Lei Po'o Workshop


We had a great Lei Po'o (head lei) workshop the day before lei day.  Most of these ladies were beginners and did really well for a first try.

2023 pre-Punahou Carnival "Haku" Workshop

After a 2 year break due to Covid, the Punahou Carnival Haku making sessions opened again for 2 days on Jan. 31 & Feb. 1.  It was a reunion and fun time for everyone to be able to get our hands on the lovely floral materials and create works of wearable art.





Cory and Dale


I was lucky to get my friends who are in the floral industry to join me for the night.  Dale, Cory, Christine, Dayna and Sue.  My daughter Sarah was the photographer.

My first lei po'o of the night.

On the second night, we were rushed and didn't have too much time to take pics but I did take a short video.

Coconut Basket Weaving with Uncle Onio

 A fun, informative, two hour session with Uncle Onio of Kauai, who taught us how to weave a quick basket with coconut fronds.  Most of the "laborious" parts of stripping the fronds was done by him so that we could start right in with the weaving.
