Workshop

In de aanloop naar de vliegerhappening op Linker Oever toe,  hebben we een 16 tal klassen begeleid in het maken van hun eerste vliegertje.  Man; Na al die jaren blijft het een kick geven om al die glimlachende kinderen te zien hollen met die vliegertjes in de hand.

Vandaag was het de laatste klas!   Vandaar dit filmpje!

Soest

I was invited for a kite workshop with the kids (6th grade) of the international School in Brussels. The locations of this 4 day event was in the Stayokay hostel - Soest (The Netherlands); 100 meters walk from the Dunes. After a small presentation on the general kite world of today we had some talks on the kites used in the different parts of the world; Always interesting to see the feedback of the kids- having roots there.    For each group we had foreseen 2 workshops: An individual project (sled kite) and a team project (kite arch).
Although I wasn't able to stay till the end, I received the above video showing the result of those great days...

On the last day at MWC, I took some hours off, to make those KAP pictures. The wind wasn't strong enough to lift my Kapfoil 4m2 high enough but still, I am happy with a few pictures.
