Workshops
Kite making workshops now have been part of my kite life for more than 10 years.
During that time I have conducted workshops around the world.
They have been specifically based on my original designs and are aimed at participants with basic contemporary kite making skills
Lately I have been engaged by kite clubs seeking a weekend experience where participants complete a functioning kite or kite related project.
Custom programmes for workshops are arranged on request.
The following portfolios of workshops are some that have proved popular over the past couple of years.
All workshops projects are fully functional. All hardware is supplied and workshop manuals enable participants to complete the projects at a later date if desired.
If your kite group is looking for something different as a club activity, email for details.

Stealth Delta

The Stealth Delta is very reliable kite able to fly well in a very wide range of winds. It has an innovative keel that compliments to graphics on the main sail. This is a good-sized delta and considered to be excellent reward for the time spent on the project.

Here we examine the shape of a delta and go on to create a low aspect ratio platform with an unconventional keel arrangement. It flys in light winds and is capable of flying comfortably in the upper ranges as well. Six graphic options are available.

The Genki is a thin version of the standard Genki from the 1980's. It is inherently a very stable platform. This version has no keels which enables clean uninterrupted designs.

The participants have the choice to elect how many kites they would like to take. The full train is 6 with a rainbow colour way graduating up the train. In the past most participants elected for the full six. However custom colourways have been requested for that extra sense of originality.

The workshop involves the construction of a unique platform.
It concentrates on the specialised appliqué technique to result in a graduated colour formation.

The Butterflies are a good workshop for a weekend where participants may want to head home halfway through the second day. Proficient participants will finish it in a day. The main head and tails are pre-cut and marked to save time in the workshop.
