Kite Making Workshop
The kite making workshops are very interesting and educative. Children like to make something that they can fly and control with a string. We use PowerPoint presentations and movie clippings to explain basic concepts.
In our workshop we teach basic skills of making kites out of paper, plastic as well as using fabric. The sessions are hands on with each child getting involved into making his own kite.
Some of the kites are stuck with glue while others have to be stitched on a sewing machine. For the structure and frames we mostly use bamboo but can also use graphite or carbon fiber rods depending on the size of the kites.
There various designs we can make are delta kites, cellular kites, box kites, dragon kites, parafoils, diamond kites, power kites and stunt kites.
To our credit we have conducted several workshops for varied age groups right from six year olds to Engineering students and continue to do so.
The workshops modules can be customized for few hours, a whole day or stretched over a week. Each workshop is customized taking into consideration the age group, interest of the participants and the time allotted for the workshop.
