Let your imagination take flight with this kite making workshop! Take inspiration from the colourful kite-flying traditions of Asia and the stunning kite festivals of the world. Frances – an International kite artist who exhibits her work all over the world – will help to stimulate your ideas by showing some of her own art kite creations. Make paper Art Kites – creations of your own design, completely unique to you using paper and bamboo. Learn shibori dyeing techniques to create a thoroughly individual paper to adorn your kite and really cut a dash in the park on a windy day.

Kites are intended to fly! So why not learn fun skills to can re-use with youngsters and friends?

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!

What you’ll need to bring with you

Everything you need will be provided. However, if you have ideas about specifics you'd like to incorporate, feel free to bring them along.

Things could get messy, so please wear old clothes.
