Once again we have a terrific lineup of instructors from around the world presenting an incredible variety of kites and techniques to accommodate all skill levels and kiting interests. The classes are open to all and are filled on a first come, first served basis. More details will follow as we get into the fall but for now, mark the date on your calendar, check out the Classes tab and start drooling.

This past Ft. Worden Kitemakers Conference at the Warm Beach facility, located in Stanwood, Washington, was a great success once again 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. We hope you join us this coming year for more kite making during a fun, relaxed weekend.
