Honolulu Community College students in the Sheet Metal and Plastics Program continue the program’s annual tradition this year by creating and selling the unique “forever rose” from sheet metal.

Also this year, for the first time the program will make a limited number of copper roses. Real roses will fade after a few days, but these roses will last forever.

The roses will be available at Honolulu Community College in Building 17 on Thursday, February 14, starting at 9:30 a.m. until they are sold out. These one-of-a-kind sheet metal roses make a special Valentine’s gift for only $5 each, and a few copper roses will be available for $15 each.

The construction of the roses will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 12 and 13, from noon to 3:30 p.m. There will be no sales during the construction days.

Money raised from the project benefits the Sheet Metal and Plastics Program.
