Kite-Making Workshop

Date: 22nd September 2019

Time: 13:00 - 15:00

Led by artist Jenny Ellis Cathedral Cloister Kites have been used for centuries to join the earth to the heavens in ‘celestial art’ and as warning signs, messengers of information and as measuring devises. Their flight relies on technical precision and imaginative design. Early kites were made of leaves then made of wood and cloth then later, paper. Kite flying became a popular pastime. Kites have such a rich history of cultural and spiritual symbolism. They are of great interest, even today for their creative possibilities. Come and join a workshop to make a simple kite that carries a message. Places are free but limited to 12 per sitting however booking is not required. All materials will be provided. Younger children can make a simple folded kite or a flag. Kite and flag workshop recommended for children aged 11+
