let's build a kite
Sled kite is a simple construction, which children aged 5-6 years will be able to build with little help from parents or leaders. Older children can build sled kite by themselves by following the instructions.
During the construction of the kite the participants will:
- install bamboo sticks in tunnels and fix them with glue
- cut the tails and attach them to the kite, cut the line to the bridle, tie it to the kite; if necessary, they learn how to tie the loop beforehand
- find the middle of the bridle line and tie a loop on it
- Then the participants learn a simple clamping knot and use it to tie the kite rope to the bridle.
The kite is ready to fly!
Duration: 1 hour
Materials: ripstop nylon/icarex sail, bamboo sticks, glue, bridle line, tail ribbon, kite line on winder.
Prices of workshops are set individually. They depend primarily on the number of participants.
The maximum number of participants per workshop is 20.
The price of one Eddy kite kit starts from EUR 7,50 and includes: costs of materials and their preparation, running the workshop by 2 instructors. For workshops organized outside the Tri-City we also charge travel costs.
During picnics and outdoor events we can conduct several workshops, one after the other with a short break in between.
We enrich the workshop with an exhibition and presentation of advanced kites, a kite chat before the start of the workshop, and we finish with common flying.
We are open to your ideas and suggestions. We invite you to cooperate with us!
