Living Culture Presentation:
Hawaiian Kapa—Making Barkcloth
With Dalani Tanahy of Kapa Hawaii
Monday–Thursday, March 16–19, 2020 (Spring Break)
10:00 am–2:00 pm
Hawaiian Hall Atrium
This program is free with paid Museum admission.

The art of making clothing and material goods from the bark of trees has been practiced around the world. In Hawaiʻi and the Pacific, plants such as wauke (paper mulberry) were used to make kapa (barkcloth). 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.

You’ll also have the opprtunity to see traditional Hawaiian kapa moe (blankets), malo (loin cloths), and tools from Bishop Museum’s collections on the second floor of Hawaiian Hall.

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