We will start the day with the lauhala basket. It is the 'lock' method of weaving. Once you learn this method you can make coasters, hot pads and baskets of any size ... the possibilities are endless. I will bring an extra supply of lauhala and a stripper for more kits. In the afternoon we will make the palm basket. There will be an abundant supply of seed pods, beads and natural items brought from Hawaii to personalize your basket.
