Have you ever made a kite? It’s something you can do in your garden or in the park, while keeping your distance from others. In fact the whole point of kite flying is not to get too close as kite strings can get into a terrible muddle.
Design & Crafts Council Ireland have joined forces with Creative Ireland to design a kite that anyone can make at home. All you need is some sticks, some newspaper, some string and a whole lot of imagination. Why not decorate in your favourite colours, or with pictures of your heroes ? Whatever you do click on the video below
Make sure you have a kite ready to take to the skies on 13th June 2020. Hold on tight, Cruinniú is going to be great. On the 28th May at 3pm, a live webinar will start you on the road to making your kite. A further number of videos will guide you and your family through fun ways to make a kite.
