About this Class:

Workshop / 1 session / $60 / Room 203 / Mon 6–9pm / Mar 7

Making kapa, the fiber/paper/cloth used by Polynesians, Asians, South Americans and Africans, is a time- and resource-heavy art. Learn about the arts and skills necessary to create fine Hawaiian kapa. Using traditional tools, you will strip and pound your own piece of wauke bark and color it with a natural dye you bring from home. Students learn printing basics with a “modern” ‘ohe kapala stamp. Tools and materials provided.
