Some ancient Hawaiian customs may have disappeared, but not the tradition of lei giving.

From airport greetings to weddings and graduations, these fragrant symbols of aloha express love and friendship.

Here’s a chance to learn one of Hawaii’s greatest art forms during your Kauai vacation: On Sept. 17th one of Kauai’s master lei makers is offering a class at Lihue’s Kauai Museum. From 9:30am to 1pm, Elvrine Chow will demonstrate the art of making Haku and Lei Po’o (flower garlands worn around the head like a wreath).

Bring foliage, flowers, a sack lunch… and your imagination! The fee is $35 per person. For more information, call Nalani Brun at (808) 241-6394.
