Fly With Me: Kite Making Workshop

Sorry, this event has sold out

Join local artist Elizabeth Tophill and Afghan story-tellers Jamila and Halima Khan at a free workshop and learn how to make Afghan kites and listen to stories and music from Afghanistan.

This is a chance for children and their grown-ups to learn how to make an authentic Afghan kite designed by master kite-maker Sanjar Qiam.

Materials include just a few wooden sticks, some tissue paper and string, and a big dollop of creativity and connection!

You are then invited to join us on Saturday 20 August for Fly With Me - a mass kite-making and storytelling workshop at Casa Anacaona on Harbour Beach before people come together for a huge kite-flying celebration.

This is a free workshop for 20 children. Each child must be accompanied by at least one an adult who is prepared to help make the kite. Adults don't need to book a ticket.

Can’t come along?

A kite flying pack is available to download for free here in Arabic, Dari, English, Pashto, Ukrainian and French. You can also order materials and watch Sanjar Qiam’s online tutorial!

Fly With Me Folkestone is co-produced by Folkestone Fringe and Creative Folkestone.
