The art of making clothing and material goods from the bark of trees has been practiced around the world. Hawaiʻi and the Pacific used the plants such as wauke (paper mulberry) to make kapa (bark cloth). Learn the history and future of kapa in Hawaiʻi, and spend some time using traditional Hawaiian tools and methods to create a piece of kapa yourself.

The Bishop Museum Living Culture series and workshops are supported by Hawai‘i Tourism through the Kūkulu Ola Program.
