If you're thinking about taking this class, do it. Aya was a welcoming host, and Cathy, the instructor was funny, warm and encouraging. Not only will you walk away with a handmade memento, but you'll gain new respect and admiration for the local culture. A really wonderful, once in a lifetime experience!

物を作る楽しさはもちろん、庭の植物を楽しんだり、ハワイの文化について教えてもらったり、本当に大切な時間を過ごすことができました。 Ayaさんは日本語を話すので、コミュニケーションに全く問題はなかったです。 ヒロが大好きになりました。 体験を強くおすすめします!

I loved learning how to weave my hat out of the coconut palm frond. It came out so amazing with the hosts being so encouraging and patient with me it was a wonderful afternoon. I enjoyed sitting next to Aya's lush fern tree forest with a slight breeze keeping us comfortable. It made for beautiful back drop for some wonderful pictures of us wearing our hats when we finished. I would definitely come back another time when I make my way back to the Big Island. The best souvenir you will come home with!

Awesome class! Aya had everything set and ready for us including water and bug spray. She even had her instructor for extra one on one help. Which I needed a lot of. In the end Sanja and I walked away with a stellar open top large brim hat and huge bowl for gathering delicious Farmers market fruit in. 👍

We have a really fun experience making traditional palm frond hats. Aya and Kathy (who has been making hats for 25 years) were great instructors and made us all feel welcome. We were all able to make really great looking hats with their guidance. The other participants were from around the world which made it fun and interesting. The setting was outdoors and shaded and felt local and non touristy. We are always trying to get away from the tourist stuff. We learned so much and had a great time.
