paper kite, self-built
first, we fold asian paper and colour it following a traditional japanese dyeing technique (shibori).
then this paper is processed further.
the cut edges are strengthened and a bamboo frame fastened.
now the kite is only missing crepe paper ribbons for the kite tail and the flying line. once we have assembled everything and trimmed
the kite, it will be tested for its suitability for flying. the kite takes off and rises up and up, showing us how easy it is to fly.
