During the different dynasties in China, kites have served different practical uses. Most importantly they were used for messaging, and in the Han Dynasty kites were even used on the battlefield. The invention of kites has been claimed by two Chinese philosophers, Mo Di and Gongshu Ban. Supposedly they flew their first kite in approximately 500 BCE, but the first official record of people flying paper kites is in 549 CE, when they were made from paper and used to send a message during a rescue mission. Nowadays kites have lost most of their practical purposes, becoming instead a form of entertainment and art. With all shapes and sizes, from fighter to recreational kites, the possibilities are endless. We want you to explore some of these possibilities with us! On Sunday 23 April one of our teachers will give a class on how to create your own kite. At the end of the class we are going to fly the kites together.
