Event description

Description

Kōnane is a strategy game traditionally played on a large stone. A series of holes were carved into the stone in a grid like pattern. Two different colored ʻiliʻili were placed in the holes and the game began. Like chess, the use of strategy is the key to help you win or lose the game.

In the first workshop you will be guided in using power tools and sand paper to design and shape your papa mū. You will be given intruction on how to grid out your papa mū and drill the holes. Once your board is prepped, sanding will begin, this will take the majority of the class.

Presenter: Nalu Andrade

The Historic Voyage of Hōkūleʻa in 1978 sparked the carving interest of Nalu Andrade at the curious age of six when he witnessed the sail in person.

In high school, Nalu was asked to assist with the lashing on Hōkūleʻa at pier 40. During this time with Hōkūleʻa he enganed with many artists and carvers that were involved in the new hawaiian renaissance including his mentors Keone Nunes, Wright Bowman Jr., and Gil Ane.

In 2015, Nalu weaved the old and the new together and created Na Maka Kahiko. His creative mind and cultured hands birthed the carvings of his wearable art, the ʻohe kāpala. His inspiration for such remarkable designs can be found at the Bishop Museum.

Nalu continues to teach his craft through workshops. He has done workshops for Pūnana Leo schools, Keiki O Ka ʻĀina and Kapiʻolani Comminty College to name a few.

He currently resides in Honouliuli, Ewa with his wife Lisa and their two children.


REMINDER: PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN CHAIR TO THE WORKSHOP. MAHALO.
