What we’ll do

We will begin at the recreation center. I will give you a little background history of myself as well as the history of kite flying in my native Brazil.

What else you should know

Be patient. We will be cutting bamboo and working with kite paper which is fragile. I will teach and assist along the way. I want you to create for yourself a working kite.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
fruit
Drinks
bottled water, juice
Equipment
bamboo, paper, string

What to bring

A positive attitude and a smile!
