Fano Kite Making Workshop

Location: 
Fano Beach, Fano, Denmark
From: 
Thursday, June 17, 2004
To: 
Sunday, June 20, 2004

After 10 years of wonderful international kite workshops coordinated by Hans Soyka, the Drachen Foundation celebrated Fano’s 20th anniversary with something new, a group kite encounter with Rick Miller and Randy Shannon

Rick Miller of New Mexico and Randy Shannon of Arizona were the dynamic duo who took note and notice of hundreds plus years of traditional Japanese Edo kite making, and brought it to contemporary times using the engineering mathematics and the manipulative artistry of modern materials!

In Fano, Denmark, DF assisted Rick and Randy in the design, painting (on the beach) constructing, bridling and flying of a contemporary Shirone style kite in tyvek and fiberglass spars…all in a 5 hour blustery period!
