Ulana'apolima Lauhala Weaving

Workshop I - Intro to Lauhala: Cleaning, Preparation and Ulana ʻApolima

In this weaving class we will go over the basics of gathering, processing and weaving Pandanus tectorius leaves or Lauhala from the Pūhala tree. We will explore the practice of leaf to hand by starting with raw materials, cleaning and stripping of fibers to create a Lauhala bracelet in the traditional makamoena form. You will make one wide bangle and learn skills to expand and build upon. 

**This class is a Level 1 class of a two-part series.

This class is taught by mother and daughter duo Shadi and Michele Zane-Faridi who have been weaving side by side for over 15 years, enjoying the practice of Ulana Lauhala in every form ranging from trivet to hat. They are joining us from Hilo on the Big Island where they have a shop called Hana Hou and Cultivar Goods. Feel free to bring something to eat and drink during class since this is an extended 3 hour workshop.

Note: Minimum to hold a workshop is 5 guests. If the minimum is not met, we will notify you one day prior and refund the workshop fee. Mahalo for your understanding!

About the photographer…….Aloha! My name is Ashley Smith.  About 10 years ago I started out doing engagements, weddings and family photos.  Then I also started shooting commercially. We decided to open a small studio.  The goal was to do headshots and product shots.  Last year we got our little Blake.  A mutt and a great addition to our family of first time dog owners.  Right after we moved into our studio Blake turned 1 and we knew we had to take portraits of him.  We ended up doing a first birthday cake smash for him.  From there we started shooting more and more pets in the studio.  We had so much fun that we decided to start Hawaii Pet Portraits.
