- Kapa kuiki is the unique form of Hawaiian quilting that traces its origins to the 1820s. Early missionaries and Hawaiians developed this art form that combines applique and quilt stitching. Quilting kits are provided for a fee (approximately $30), and requires many hours of intricate work. 2 hours, once a week. Multiple classes are recommended.

- Hula is the art of Hawaiian dance. It expresses all that we hear, see, smell, taste, touch and feel. Hula is life. The late kumu hula - dance master - Maiki Aiu Lake's philosophy expresses the depths of this Hawaiian art form. Puake'ala Mann, a kumu hula graduate of Hälau Hula o Maiki, shares basic hand gestures, footwork and body movements that accentuate mele - chant or song lyrics.
- Building B, Level 1 — Helumoa Hale Guest Services & Heritage Room
- Learn basic chords and songs as you strum Hawai'i's best-known string instrument, introduced to the islands in the 1870s from Portugal. 25 instruments and music books are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own, or purchase one at Bob's 'Ukulele at Royal Hawaiian Center. Instructors Wainani Yim and Puake'ala Mann are seasoned performers who share favorite songs and simple chords.
Owing to the popularity of our ukulele classes, we have implemented a number system. Guests can retrieve a number (1-25) from Helumoa Hale Guest Services staff starting at 10am in order to secure their place in the class.
