Lei Hulu and Stencil Stamping Workshop

We had a fun combined workshop on the afternoon of Saturday, 10 June 2017; we learnt how to make lei hulu and also had a short demonstration and try-out session stamping cloth with stencils made from linoleum plates.

As an introduction to working with feathers, we made small hair pick-style accessories instead of actual leis, and the stamping was a preparatory exercise as we will soon we making our own pa’u. It was a fun and informative session in which we not only learnt new things about Hawaiian culture and hula tradition, but also about each other and our own personalities.
