Lunchtime Leis is a lei making workshop held alongside Fa'amele Etuale exhibition Remember Me.
The artist wants to reach out to the community and to art makers of all ages and skill levels with the opportunity to create a lei.
Materials will be provided, but if you have material that you want to make a lei with, please bring it along to the workshop.
Remember Me is a solo exhibition of works by Sāmoan (Laulii, Malie, Leufisa, Tufulele) / Chinese visual artist, contemporary Pacific jeweller, designer, florist and lei maker Fa’amele Etuale.
Her work pays homage to her alofa (love) for her a’iga (family), God, culture and grief.
Contemporary jewellery offers a medium to capture and archive memories through the objects she creates. Fa’amele’s process is indicated by pivotal moments in her life; adornment has created a structure for her to encase, reflect and release emotion.
