The 2017 Conference is over and the work has started for 2018. Our list of teachers and their projects will be posted on the classes page in early summer.

The 2017 Ft. Worden Kitemakers Conference at the Warm Beach facility, located in Stanwood, Washington, was once again a success with teachers and attendees from around the globe. The facilities continued to be comfortable and convenient, and the purpose, well, you know....  we made kites, learned new techniques and methods, saw old friends, made new ones, hopefully won a raffle item, and had a great weekend with other kite makers and flyers. If you did not join us in the past two years, you can check out the camp on their web site. We hope you join us in 2018 for more kite making during a fun, relaxed weekend.

Our purpose is to make kites, learn new techniques and methods, see old friends, make new ones, hopefully win a raffle item, and have a great weekend with other kite makers and flyers. We hope you can join us!
