Mālama Learning Center will host their August Without Walls Workshop of Lauhala weaving for beginners on Saturday, August 30.
The event will be held at the Kapolei High School Portable 1 from 9 a.m. to noon.
The cost is $15 per person or $40 for families of up to 3 people.
In the hands-on workshop, educator and practitioner Jewelynn Kirkland will be instructing participants about the hala tree's significance in the Hwaiian culture, how to identify hala leaves that are suitable for weaving and the procedure for preparing leaves that will be woven.
The hala tree can be found across the islands and is revered for its many uses both in the past and present. The most common practice for this tree today is the use of the leaves to weave hats, bracelets and mats.
Workshop participants will be guided through the process of constructing a multiple-use lauhala basket and rose.
