In our experimental inter-generational series of art classes, adults and young people are invited to attend art classes together to learn processes, create work, support and inspire one another and collaborate. The courses are designed at an adult teaching level with in-depth skills and processes to create considered and professional pieces.

Inspired by a variety of different cultures, we will create and experiment with kite making. Constructing both individual and collaborative decorative kites. One of our main sources of inspiration will be the Guatemalan ‘Barrilete’ kites flown on all saints day to say hello to and celebrate the dead. Children will be encouraged to write messages to the eyes of sky and cosmos.
