Picasso Meets Sewing Machine Artists - Fanø 2018

kite.builders has an article about our Fanø Kitemakers Workshop.
"...Meanwhile, the men tried the sewing machines. Eli and Shula Shavit from Israel taught the "Tessellating Pinwheels Ohashi Sail Design" in their workshop as part of the Fanø Kitemakers. That sounds complicated and it is - until you know how it works. 17 participants participated in the workshop at the Fanø school, where six kites were completed at the workshop and the remaining kites completed at home."

More photos from the workshop can be seen here.
