“O ke kahua mamua, mahope ke kūkulu.” The site first, and then the building. ~Olelo Noʻeau #2459
A basic rule that we all know and it applies to our every aspect of our life is to set a strong foundation before moving forward or upward. When it comes to building physical structures this rule is all to obvious. Such is the way of Hawaiian style dry-stack wall building (uhau humu pohaku) plus a few more rules to make it last generations!
This uhau humu pōhaku workshop that will go over materials, procedures, engineering and process of traditional Hawaiian rock walls. The information and hands-on experience passed on over the course of the two days will hopefully leave you with the confidence to take this knowledge and create your own projects.
The two-day workshop is from 8am – 4pm on Saturday June 28th and Sunday June 29th. The registration fee of $40 covers lunch for both days, a Paepae o Heʻeia tshirt of your choice, and an informational booklet. Register for the workshop at wallbuilding.eventbrite.com .
