Event Details

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.

13:30 – 17:00

Price: ¥50/person  Price covers all materials (cloth/wood) and the  information you need to create your own masterpiece!
