kite workshops

Adult workshops

 

Do you want to improve your kitemaking skills or learn a new skill, or perhaps get the confidence to make your first kite?  There is a variety of ongoing annual kite workshops  that will fit the bill.

Check the Events Calendar for workshop listings.

 

Kids workshops

 

A kite workshop leader can facilitate the creation of hundreds of kites in a single day. The kids always enjoy building, decorating, and flying kites they make.

Kite kits for kids of different ages can be made or purchased. Volunteers are always welcome and needed, especially for larger events – check with the event organizer!

Kites in the classroom 

Kites in the Classroom is designed to help you promote the world of kiting to an audience in a classroom setting. This may be the first real experience for many people with a kite.
