The MBK Beginner E-course

A Fun Way To Make A Working Kite!

Have you never made a kite in your life? Or perhaps you did, but it didn't fly very well, or at all!

You'll be glad this free e-course has come along. It's in five parts, spread over 2 weeks to take account of your time availability and of course, unpredictable weather.

Each part is a photo-illustrated email which takes you step by step through some aspect of making and flying a simple Diamond kite. Not just any old small kid's kite, but one which actually flies very well, if you follow the simple directions.

I call this design the Tiny Tots Diamond. There it is in the photo, gaining height after a hand launch. Eager to get away from the young lad chasing its tail, no doubt...

The kite uses 12 inch bamboo skewers, often sold in packs of 100 for only a dollar or two. The Metric equivalent size is 300mm x 2.5mm. 3mm bamboo would still work, but the thinner the better.

If you are at least 16 years old, here's where you can sign up...



Plenty of fun kite info, photos and videos - there's definitely too much here for only one visit! Feel free to leave your impressions of this site or just this page, below...
