Jose and Scott bring together over 50 years’ experience in kite design, kite building, and kite flying to present this hands-on workshop of imaginative paper and bamboo kites.  Jose presents his three-stick approach with organic designs that at one moment might suggest a heraldic shield and at the next, a butterfly.  Scott starts with the traditional American barn door kite and manipulates three equal-length spars into new hexagons and X-wing swallows.  Students should be prepared to design and construct unique three-stick kites inspired by Jose and Scott’s starting points.

Kites will be paper (supplied or bring your special decorative paper, art paper or Japanese washi) and split bamboo (about 20 inches long.)
