This will not only provide colour and atmosphere but attract people to your event.Kite Kinetics also designs and develops static exhibitions of two and three dimensional kite structures at galleries, halls, shopping centres, corporate buildings and foyers.
Discovering the Wonderful World of Kites and Kite Making

All materials are provided and each child makes a kite which can be decorated based on an educational theme.This theme is developed in consultation with teachers to meet learning objectives.Workshops promote the understanding of different cultures,customs, and values through visual symbols. Michael also emphasises Australian flora and fauna and encourages the use of recycled and natural materials in making the kites. COMMUNITY EVENTS The Kite Kinetics team can conduct workshops at festivals, fairs and other events. There are a variety of kite designs to choose from to suit your needs.Participants will be able to decorate their kites on a theme related to your event.
Spinning Flower Workshops
Recycling for fun
These are recycled plastic drinking bottles, mounted on corks and a metre long fibreglass rod, cut into flowers which spin in the wind. Participants paint their own flowers with acrylic paints.A great recycling project. We have a thousand spinning flowers including a series based on Western Australian wildflowers which are part of our ground display.
