Lauhala Weaving with Wesley Sen: Bookmark

October 23, 9:00am - 11:30am
Mānoa Campus, Lyon Arboretum

Join Wesley Sen as he guides us on how to make a Lauhala bookmark! Wesley Sen was mentored by Beatrice Krauss 40 years ago and introduced to Native Hawaiian weavers at a conference at the Lyon Arboretum. Wesley was initially taught by his friend’s grandmother Julia Puou of Opihihale South Kona on how to weave a basket and a hat. Today, Wesley teaches lauhala and Kapa making classes at Ka Papa Lo’i O Kānewai back of UH Hawaiian studies. After signing up for the class, when you call Lyon’s main office to pay, please schedule a time to pick up your lauhala kit. Kits will be available for pick up 1 week before the class. One kit will be available with each registration. One week before the class, we will send out a pre-recorded lauhala bookmark lesson to all participants. The instructor has asked all participants to watch the video and follow along BEFORE the live class session. During the live session, he will give a step-by-step lesson, and then he will take questions. The pre-recorded lesson and the live zoom recording will be available for 1 month after the live lesson. Refunds will not be available after the pre-recorded lesson is sent out.
