An expert kite-maker will teach families how to build their own mini-kites in a workshop at The Harley Gallery in Welbeck, Worksop.

Dr Xenia Danos will teach teams of one adult and one child about the science behind how a kite can fly, then learn how to design, make and decorate a mini kite on Saturday, 16th August, from 10am to 1pm.

Xenia has been a teacher in the UK and is now a researcher at the University of Cyprus. This workshop is inspired by the research of Japanese scientists, which has been adapted and simplified for use in schools.

After your adult and child team has created your very own mini-kite, you will talk a short walk to Creswell Crags to fly your kite.

While at Creswell Crags, you can also use the picnic area or go on a cave tour.

It costs £15 per Kite Team. To book your place call 01909 501 700.
