Ever want to make that stunning miniature kite with clean, sharp graphics, or your favorite team logo? ......But do you find yourself lacking in the artistic skill to accomplish this? Now you can learn a way to make it happen!

In this class, Grant will describe his technique of printing onto tissue paper to decorate sails for miniature kites. We will discuss the benefits and limitations of this technique. The supplies needed and where to get them will also be discussed.

We will then proceed to make miniature Eddy kites, using pre-printed tissue kite sails that will be provided. 

Each student will be able to select several pre-printed sails. They will also receive extra, blank tissue paper and spars, so that they may practice the technique at home.   

Supplies/Equipment Needed for class -- Scissors, tweezers and utility knife, scalpel or exacto knife.  A small cutting mat is optional, but not necessary.
