Day and a Half Project

Class Size - 15
TYPE OF CLASS:
The Crafts/Conn Genki will handle a wide range of winds and is very stable and efficient flier.
This is a great low wind flier if built with lightweight materials.
SIZE OF PROJECT:
The Crafts/Conn Genki is 52 inches high, 143 inches wide (really big)
Construction is simple and the details can be copied or transferred from most other kites that are commonly built, however there are some theories that are important to learn from these master kite makers.
You cut your own sails, we bring the fiddly bits, and Simon, Brett and the class will figure it out over a day and a half.
Join Simon Crafts and Brett Marchel in making a Simon Crafts/ Adrian Conn Genki. This is a superb flying kite. It will handle a wide range of winds, is very stable and efficient, and – if built with lightweight materials– is often the only kite in the sky during those lulls at a festival.
