Class meets on various Saturdays each month. (Please see schedule below.) Class size is limited, so sign up early.

Lyon Arboretum’s very own volunteer lei making group, Hui Hana Lei, will be sharing their knowledge and love of lei making with students in this class. Participants will learn the Wili method of creating leis. Wili, in Hawaiian, means to twist. The technique involves wrapping raffia or string around the backing of the lei. Two different dates are available to choose from: August 3rd and 10th. Both dates cover the same topic.

The Lei ladies will be providing raffia as well as some of their own flowers and greens as well.


Creative Writing Inspired By Nature

INSTRUCTOR: Lourena Yco

If you have stories to share, then you are halfway to becoming a writer. This class will provide some tools to help you generate, organize, and refine the stories you want to tell. The best stories are the ones we already know, so we will be using our experiences and our environment (the wonderful Lyon Arboretum) as our inspiration to create our stories.

Two classes will be offered. Sign up for one or both classes.
