About this Event

This class is intended for first-time or beginner kite builders. If you don't know how kites are made, or what makes them fly, or have trouble getting a kite in the air, this class is for you. We'll take some time talking about the role kites have played in our American history, and we can look at the different kinds of kites there are in the world. Since kites are technically considered aircraft, there are also some aerodynamic considerations to discuss, as well as some good, practical tips for how to get them in the air when conditions are less than ideal. We'll fill the night making a basic, single-string diamond kite, like the one I made when I was a kid, that you'll take home to fly (almost) any time you want. Since there is room for six tables, and since this is a debut class, come with a flexible and ready mind to see how the evening goes. Children are welcome to join but due to limited table size should be ten years old or older and are limited to no more than two children per registrant. Remember, ALL CHILDREN NEED TO FILL OUT A WAIVER.
