Description: This is a high flying boxed delta. It has been simplified to make it easier for beginning kite builders to complete. Chris will be including custom 3D printed parts as well as a simple sewing guide for making straight seams.


Chris has geared the class for the beginning kite makers. He will be stressing basic preparation and sewing techniques for getting those tidy edges and perfect seams.



A great beginning kite with exciting options for the experienced kite builder, or festival organizer.


Plan on making several to run competitions for Fast Climb Heats at area festivals. 


Supplies needed    Basic sewing machine and supplies. A good straight edge, fabric glue and hot cutting tool are handy, but can be borrowed from me or other students.
