Kaipo Ah Chong, a Hawaiian cultural practitioner, will offer his popular tropical flower arranging workshop once again at Volcano Art Center.

The workshop will be held on Friday, Jan. 5, 2018, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village.

Leave the workshop with your own arrangement to take with you and enjoy. The finished flower arrangements are sure to evoke a sense of paradise in your home. Or, extend your aloha to a friend or loved one with an arrangement you artfully assembled yourself—perfect for any occasion.

A tropical agriculture farmer and member of Halau Na Kamalei, Ah Chong will share his expert skills in this hands-on workshop.

Explore color and texture in three dimensions with tropical flowers. Choose from an array of flowers like anthuriums, orchids, ti leaves, ginger and heliconia, to name a few.
