For Immediate Release

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo College of Continuing Education and Community Service presents “Native Hawaiian Wreath Making,” a one-day workshop, on Saturday, November 15 from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the UH Hilo Manono Campus, Building 381, Room 16.

Under the guidance of Big Island artist Katie DeMent, students will learn to identify plants ideal for wreath making and to gather those plants in a sustainable manner. They will then create at least one 14-inch wreath using native Hawaiian foliage, gaining the skills and knowledge to continue making their own wreaths for future events.

Fresh plant materials and other supplies will be provided, but students should bring one pair of sharp garden clippers and gardening gloves. Tuition is $65 with members of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute receiving a $5 discount, plus $10 for materials to be paid to the instructor at class.

To register, or for more information, call CCECS at 974-7664.
