Instructor: Alexa King – Paper and Bamboo Japanese Koma Dako Kite
Day & Time: Sunday 8:30 AM, Class #6
Description: Make a Japanese kite using a plan from Masaaki Modegi’s book "Making Japanese Kites". Using paper, bamboo and glue, you will rediscover the joy of simpler, traditional materials while making a thing of beauty. Learn to tear paper to create a feathery edge for a decorative version, and take home plain washi paper to make one to fly.
What to bring: Cutting mat, scissors, sharp cutting tool (I prefer a snap-off utility knife), metal 18" ruler, something non-tippy to hold small amount of water – coffee mug works great.
Experience level: Beginners on up
