Join us for an evening with master lei maker Yukio Otani to learn his style of haku lei. Yukio joins us from Japan, where at his school Umahana he teaches hula and leads workshops that communicate the joy of lei making. He has also written a beautiful book, 笑顔の花飾り (translated roughly to Smiley Flower Decoration).
Workshop includes one hour of demonstration and one hour of hands on instruction.
** 50% of the proceeds from this workshop will go to supporting the fight against the Rapid 'Ohia Death disease that is killing many of the sacred Ohi'a trees on Hawai'i Island.
a note from our guest......
"ALOHA! my name is Yukio Otani. First of all, I appreciate this kind of opportunity from PAIKO. I've been thinking about holding a workshop in Hawaii for a long time and to be able to share my original lei style. I'm looking forward to have a workshop with you guys. See you on July!!"
