Kaua‘i lei-maker Elvrine Chow will discuss her passion for lei-making beginning at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Kaua‘i Museum in Lihu‘e.
Chow, who specializes in haku lei — those worn around the forehead — was introduced to the art 30 years ago. After her talk Saturday, Chow will teach the audience how to make a haku lei.
“Once I learned how to make a haku lei, I wanted to do it all the time,” she said in a press release. “Before then, I had always wanted to wear a haku but was never given one. When I got to wear one, I felt like a princess. I love helping other people feel that way, too.”
Chow, who sells haku lei at the Kaua‘i Community Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, is often greeted by visitors who tell her that she is the only person they have met who makes lei.
“I meet the most amazing people from all over the world,” she says. “Sometimes there are three or four languages being spoken under my tent at Farmers Market.”
The museum conversation will be facilitated by Pamela Brown, author of the book “Kaua‘i Stories,” a collection of 50 inspiring, touching and humorous stories about island life.
This talk story event is part of the Kaua‘i Museum’s ongoing “Author Series,” which highlights talented local writers.
Admission to the Kaua‘i Museum and this event is $10. Museum members are admitted for free.
