Instructor: Lindsey Johnson

Day & Time: Saturday 9:00 AM Class #5

Cost: $45.00 – you supply your own fabric for the sail

Description: In this class you will construct what we are calling the “So-Sew” construction method. Part no-sew, part sewn. When completed, your kite will measure approximately 30” wide by 90” high with an attached double swallow tail of approximately 8’ in length.

Prior to the workshop, class members are encouraged to design and sew the main sail to a rough dimension. Printable patterns will be provided after registering for the class.

In the workshop you will finish sewing the kite and complete the construction using fiberglass framing, precision templates and our unique 3D printed tunable pocket system with snap fittings.

What to bring:

  • You will need 3 yards of 60 inch wide 3/4oz rip stop nylon for the sail and tail in one color. Add more for other colors as needed
  • 4-6 rolls of 5/8” wide Double Faced Solid Satin Ribbon for the tail extension. Choose colors to compliment your design
  • Material to make a bag 36” long and 5” in diameter
  • Sewing machine, notions, cutting mat
