Still to get started? Follow the information below….

How do I make my kite?
Your kit includes step by step instructions, but if you get stuck, you can watch this ‘How To Video’ which shows you all the stages.

Where can I get inspiration?  
Stuck for where to start on your design? We commissioned ten makers tcreate their own kite using the kits. Each was selected for a different skillset – whether that be experience in textiles, collage, screen-printing, graphic design, architectural drawing etc. so there’s a great mix of styles and references to get inspired by. All live or have a connection to the borough.

What do I do once I’ve finished my kite?
Film it!  Photograph it! Upload it to the Gallery!

We’d love you to upload an image of your kite to feature in our special online gallery, showcasing the range of amazing kites made by everyone across the borough. We’ve produced 1000 kits, so are looking forward to gathering them all together! Lets build the biggest online kite gallery the world has ever seen……

Remember to photograph or film your kites in portrait format. They need to be 800 x 800 pixels ideally.
