Paper & Bamboo: Three Stick Kite Workshop

Saturday, July 16

9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

With Jose Sainz & Scott Skinner

$65. Materials included.


Join visiting artists Jose Sainz and Scott Skinner in a unique kite making workshop.  Students will create a small three stick flying kite made out of bamboo sticks covered with natural fiber light weight paper in the color and texture of their liking. Several sample shapes will be provided. However, you will be encouraged to get creative and make your own shape and designs using only three sticks. Learn from the experts and walk away from the workshop with a beautiful paper and bamboo kite.  Founder of the Drachen Foundation, Scott Skinner has been active in kite making for over 25 years. He is a frequent lecturer, writer, and workshop leader. He has amassed collections of kites, kite ephemera, European kite prints and Japanese ukiyo-e.

Jose Sainz has  been making and flying kites since 1989. Over the years he has attended and displayed  kites at numerous National and International kite festivals around the world. He has also conducted kite-making workshops all around the nation.  Jose has been a long time member of the Kite Art Committee for the AKA and was recently named to the Board of the directors for the Drachen Foundation in Seattle, WA.
