Lokelani ‘Ohana has partnered with local artist Melissa Hagerty to offer a therapeutic arts class, “Heart of the Hive,” to Maui residents, including adults with developmental disabilities, from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays at the Lokelani ‘Ohana Farm in Waihee.

“Heart of the Hive” teaches participants how to weave a honeycomb hexagon-shaped “cell” of a beehive in the indigenous Huichol weaving style known as the “ojo de Dios” (the eye of God).

The cost is $50 per person and all materials are included. Reservations are required and class sizes are limited. Classes will be socially distanced, masks are required, temperatures will be taken and all participants must sign an intake form and waiver.

To reserve a seat, email mothabug@gmail.com. To donate materials to the program or to help Lokelani ‘Ohana fund scholarships, visit www.lokelaniohana.org.
