What to Expect/FAQs
The goal of the class is for everyone to have fun and to make a beautiful lei. Want it to be a casual experience with drinks (think happy hour)? Great! Want the class to be more focused? No problem either. Maile can cater the class to the overall desires of the group.
The class will start with a brief introduction, quick history about the lei and its meaning in Hawaiian culture. Then we will dive into the lesson.
NEVER MADE A LEI? No problem! Participants will be guided through each and every step.
