Lei Making Workshop
Lei making is such a special experience here in Hawaii. It is a physical representation of aloha, and intended to emote a feeling of welcoming, love, and appreciation. Oftentimes, locals will wear leis to commemorate a special event, like a birthday, graduation, wedding, or the like. Craft a colorful lei for yourself or someone you love, under the guidance of local artist Sarah Fields right here on property.
