Testimonials

What an enjoyable afternoon! I learned a lot about the culture and history of this traditional practice. Page is a master at her art and it was a gift to be able to learn from her. Very much appreciated!

Jen H.

My friends and I spent an amazing afternoon with Page learning about the creation of Kapa. It was a wonderfully immersive hands on experience! We participated in the creation of kapa starting with the harvesting of the wauke to a workable piece of kapa. Page was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging, she obviously loves her craft and loves to teach. We are looking forward to returning for another experience so that we can build on we've learned so far. I wish I could give this experience more than 5 stars!

Kapa Outreach Education Program

A large part of our mission involves ensuring the cultural education of Hawaiʻis future generations. We run kapa education programs at multiple schools across Oʻahu, teaching students from age 7 and up. Through the program they learn to cultivate a native garden, craft traditional tools, and of course make kapa. The program is structured in a way that allows schools to continue independent of us after approximately 2 years. This allows us to bring the experience to more students, schools, and teachers! We have gotten to this point with two schools so far and are continuing to run the program with several others.
