Plastic Free Kites

Kite side view

A couple of years ago I was walking along the beach in my native Northumberland and I came across a plastic kite all tangled up in the marram grass. I decided to design my own kite that was made of only biodegradable materials so if your kite gets lost at sea or up in a tree it will slowly rot away. This kite workshop has proved very popular at  Orkney International Science Festival 2017, Abu Dhabi Science Festival in 2017, The Mother of the Nation Festival 2018, Abu Dhabi Science Festival 2019 and at Wallington Hall (a National Trust property) Summer 2018.
