Kite Making Workshops


Kids decorating their workshop kites

Let’s Fly Kites offers kite workshops in New York City and surrounding regions.

  • Kite Building Workshops
  • Kite History
  • Kites In The Classroom
  • Kite Flying Demos

The kite building workshops feature Eddy kites, sled kites, Hexagonal, and Butterfly kites. Most workshop kites require no cutting and can be decorated and built in one to one and a half hours. Some can be built faster.
Different skill levels are required for some kites.


Kite History

In this workshop, more time is devoted to kite history and kite theory. Kite safety is covered as well. Participants are taught how to recognize and correct kite flying problems. Participants then assemble a diamond-shaped kite, and will have the knowledge to fly it successfully.


Kites in the Classroom

This workshop is for groups, or individuals that want to learn how to make kites for kids of all ages. They are taught kite basics. Construction of two kites is demonstrated. Participants are shown how to make templates for cutting kite sails.


Adult Workshops

Workshops are available for older teens and adults. In one a Hexagonal-shaped three-stick kite using a three point bridle is made. In another a Butterfly kite is made. This kite has a more complex frame with a two point bridle. These kites take a minimum of two (2) hours to complete. Group size effects time needed to complete the project. No sewing or gluing. Other workshops are available as well. Contact me for more details.
