Dry box workshop drew a crowd

This week’s Native Hawaiian dry box workshop in the courtyard of building 5 on Oct. 3 was a huge success, said coordinator Jacob Hau’oli Lorenzo-Elarco.
Although there were a few kinks, everyone left with an awesome feeling seeing the dry box workshop happening while fellow students, faculty, staff, and others were continue to work on the hale going up in the courtyard.
“It really looked and felt like a Hawaiian place of learning,” said Lorenzo-Elarco. “A long-time member of our UH community expressed to me his excitement and gratitude to our administration and the Hawaiian programs for really transforming the court yard into a beautiful and functional area.”
He praised student Kiha Rodrigues for creating and leading this workshop.
“This was really his brainchild that was driven by his passion,” he said.
A follow-up workshop is planned for those who couldn’t attend the first one.
