Shop local and meet the artists on Thursday, March 30, 2017 from 5:00 to 9:00 pm as Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina presents its third Moonlight Market, a magical evening of shopping featuring acclaimed Hawaiian artists and artisans in a curated exhibition.
The March Market will showcase new vendors including Welzie Art by Two Crows Surfboards, Liz Barney Photography, Lauren Brown Art, Craig Mason Woodworks, Tolentino Farms, The Papaya Exchange, Salvage Public, Linda Kane Art, Kris Goto Art and Island Reclaimed Wood. Returning are lauhala weaver Aloma Wang, painter Jan Tetsutani, Ni’ihau shell jewelry designer Ha’aheo Hawaiian, floral and haku lei maker Ocean Dreamer, unique baby gifts by Hi’ilani, home décor and lifestyle items from Island Bungalow Hawaii and the Resort’s own Caprice boutique.
The Moonlight Market brings an artisanal flair to gift giving, inviting Resort guests and residents to shop and sip champagne with some of Hawaii’s most acclaimed artists and designers. Guests can also opt to “shop and dine” with reservations at Fish House and Noe.
More than a shopping excursion, Four Seasons Moonlight Market is an immersive cultural experience showcasing the wide array of talent on Oahu’s west side that is part of the Resort’s new #FSWayfinders program.
Inspired by ancient Polynesian navigational tradition, #FSWayfinders is an ongoing weekly series featuring art, culture, history and in-depth workshops at the new Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina. The recently launched program showcases myriad experiences related to Hawaii and the Pacific, weaving together traditions of the past with an occasional modern spin. Workshop opportunities include bamboo wood carving, haku lei making, lauhala weaving, ancient healing practices and sarong dying, to name a few.
“Oahu’s western coastline is home to revered cultural storytellers, artisans and crafters,” says Four Seasons Resort Oahu General Manager Sanjiv Hulugalle. “From watermen to kupuna, artisans to designers, these kama’aina are the breath of life to Hawaii. Our Moonlight Market brings the full #FSWayfinders collective together. We’re taking the stress out of shopping and turning it into a one-of-a-kind cultural experience for guests and visitors alike.”
