In this experience, guests can make their own Hawaiian lei with fresh materials grown on the island. There are 2 options: 1 Head lei with flowers or 2 strands of neck lei with ti leaf. We'll provide everything needed to make it such as, flowers, greenery, ti leaf raffia strings (palm fiber), scissors. It takes approximately 1 hour to make 1 Head Lei or 2 strands of neck lei. The procedure would slightly differ between these two. Neck lei with Ti leaf is a little easier than head lei so guests can make 2. Ti leaf lei looks good on everybody, including males, kids, and elders. Even if there is 2 or more people in the class, guests can make whichever choice they like. Please let us know in advance which you would like to make in class. After guests finish Lei Making, photo time is available in our garden surrounded by tropical plants and flowers (No professional photographer included). The class layout plan is as follows: 1. Instruction 2. Lei Making 3. Photo Time
