Event Navigation

Join InLiquid member Alice Thompson for a special workshop on kite making. Learn how to make a small kite that flies high! Participants are invited to decorate their kite sail using colored markers, and assemble their own flyable Vietnamese kite, with flexible bamboo spars and tails. Feel free to bring pictures that you’d like to trace onto the 12″ x 12″ sail paper, or just bring your imagination. 
 
Please RSVP soon as space fills quickly. If you realize you can no longer attend, please cancel your reservation at least 24 hours ahead so that we can make spots available to our waitlist. Once you finish with your kite please join us in the North, South and West Tower galleries for the closing reception of Chance Encounter!
