Come experience the Taste of Aloha with food and a fun craft.
November 3rd between 6pm-7pm
Venue: 909 Shull Street West Columbia, SC
Taste of Aloha - demonstration of peeling pineapples "the island way" and flavoring with Li Hing. A delicious island favorite that is both healthy and fun! Together with a few other samplings of island treats, we will also share how to make "Plantation Iced Tea" - a thirst quenching and delightful beverage islanders love to share under the swaying palm trees while they remain cool in wonderful trade winds.
Oiwi Hawaiʻi - a super fun way of learning how Hawaiians of old made their own carved bamboo and then mixed dyes from plant life and stamped their tapa (a fabric made of mulberry bark). Clothing, bed linens, and many decorative items were adorned with this precious artwork. We will share real ohe kapala (bamboo stamps), and together we will produce some commemorative, frameable artwork that you can take home. We will even provide you with your Hawaiian name so that can be added to your artwork!
