Kapa Sales

Kapa sales are priced differently depending on the size, color, timing, etc. Each kapa I make is the life of one or more wauke trees, so the trees I use must be ready to harvest at the correct time for the best kapa. 
If you would like to order kapa, please contact me through this website or send a message to my Kapa Hawaii, LLC Facebook page. I would be happy to work with you to create a beautiful, one of a kind piece of traditional Hawaiian art. 
Please look through the gallery pages to get ideas on colors, designs, patterns, etc. Ancient Hawaiians would tell their stories through petroglyphs, tatoos, wood and stone carving, and through kapa. Maybe you have an idea of your own that you would like to express through the medium of kapa. Mahalo nui for your interest in kapa making and the preservation of this art.

Kapa Classes

Contact me for fees and date availability if you are interested in a group kapa class. Class content and time can be very flexible according to your needs. I have been a kapa teacher for over 15 years and have worked with students of all ages, from Kindergarten to Kupuna. 
I have done kapa demonstrations at: the National Museum of the Native American Indian in Washington DC; the Festival of Pacific Arts in American Samoa; and the May Day Ho`olaule'a and Hula Festival in Japan. 
The Real Time Kapa class just started in 2012. It is a year long course that begins with students planting their own wauke trees. As the trees grow, they will learn about the history and tradtions of kapa in Polynesia and worldwide. Students will make their own tools, learn dye-making techniques, softening, and scenting kapa. When the trees are ready to harvest, they will begin the kapa making process.
