05.30.18 // Making Floral Leis with Lena Ruark Eastes // 7-8:30pm
Make a lei-the sign of infinite love and friendship with locally grown heirloom flowers from Blossoming Hearts Farm here in Candler, NC. Lei making is a traditional craft of the Hawaiian Islands (a spiritual home place for me) and brings together many of my passions beauty, flowers, floral design and the power of love and intention. In this class each participant will make their own fresh flower lei or make a lei for a loved one. This is a great class for all ages so bring your Ohana (family) and let’s surround ourselves with beautiful flowers and beautiful blessings for one another and Mother Earth. We will also do some singing.
$20, includes all flowers and materials
