Fanø Kitemakers Workshop - Fanø 2018

We were honored to be invited to teach a Patchwork Kite Masterclass during the 2018 Fanø Kitefliers Meeting in Denmark. We chose a Tessellating Pinwheels design for an Ohashi style kite. Eighteen participants worked hard during the 9 hour workshop and by the end of the day, there were 5 complete kites. With diligent participants working late, we had twelve kites in the sky the following day.
