Here at Community Kite Project we believe fun and imagination are precious commodities. We would like to share them with as many people as possible. For hundreds of years kites have been central to childhood (and adult) games and pursuits; indeed, kite flying across the globe is synonymous with freedom, the outdoors, imagination and possibilities.
We run kite-making and flying workshops for everyone and anyone. Simple as that really.
After a fantastic residency at Space FiftyFour in March 2012, we are now ‘on tour’, running workshops and flying days at various locations across the UK and Europe. If you’d like us to come to you, get in touch! – www.kiteproject.co.uk – www.facebook.com/CommunityKiteProject

A selection of fine artists have created beautiful one-off kites. Each kite is handmade by Christopher Jarratt to a traditional English Archtop design using British steam bent ash.
