This hands-on class will show how to select, harvest, de-thorn, process, and cut lau hala leaves into strips for weaving. The class will end with making a simple 3-strand kūpe‘e (bracelet) and start a 5-strand to finish on your own. Gail Kuba is a retired public and private school teacher, and a weaver who has been working with lauhala since 2000. She learned from gifted Kumu like Uncle Frank Masagatani, Aunty Kuʻulei Haina of Hana, Uncle Wes Sen, and now Pohaku Kahoʻohanohano. Kuba is also a lei flower grower and lei maker, a kapa maker, and studies lāʻau lapaʻau. All these studies inform her work.
