This is a practical workshop from which participants will learn how to design, construct, and fly their own kites. Learn drafting, basic aerodynamics, laser cutting, sewing, knots and braiding. A number of suggested designs are offered but improvisation and experimentation are absolutely encouraged. The group leader will be building an 8 square metre self-inflating power kite and shall teach by example. Materials required include sail cloth (icarex or similar nylon / polyester material). Sewing thread will be provided. Adventurous parties may also choose to build a wind-powered kite buggy.
