May Day is Lei Day! Join us to learn about the art of ti leaf lei making.

Iolani Palace partners with Hear Hawaii for its monthly workshop on Saturday, May 14, from 12 – 1 p.m. and 2 – 3 p.m. in Iolani Palace’s Hale Koa (Barracks) Video Theatre. The workshop is free and open to the public.

In May’s workshop, participants will learn the various uses of ti leaf and its significant importance to the people of Hawaii. In Hawaiian culture, the ti plant is considered sacred and can be used in a variety of ways, including medicinally, wrapping gifts and food, and in hula. The plant is also used in religious ceremonies and is a symbol of good luck, health, and aloha. Kumu Anuhea will teach participants how to craft their own lei lāʻi from start to finish, which they can take home at the end of the workshop.

Spaces are limited to 20 people per group, and interested individuals are encouraged to register early.
