In celebration of May Day, Sacred Hearts Academy students will learn how to make haku lei and bamboo-themed hair picks through a series of after-school workshops next week.

This is the first year the Academy is hosting the free workshops, which is opened to students in grades 7 to 12. The students are able to wear their floral pieces to school on May Day, which will be celebrated on April 27.

Junior Leinani Lacio said making haku lei is something she enjoys doing.

“I would definitely go to the workshop because I think haku lei are beautiful,” Lacio said. “It’s wonderful how we are able to create…a piece of art with only a few different items.”

Haku lei, otherwise known as floral crowns, can be made using different methods. It involves braiding floral pieces, such as ferns and flowers, with twine. The length of the haku depends on the circumference of one’s head.

This workshops, which are sponsored by the Sacred Hearts Academy Parents Organization, will be held on Tuesday, April 25 at 2:45 p.m. and Wednesday, April 26 at 1:30 p.m in the Student Center; however, seats are limited to 75 students per workshop.
