skybums 2020 quality high performance kites handmade in shropshire since 1986
margam park workshop 2020 is our rhombox
This years Margam Park kite festival workshop is the rhombox. The rhombox is a classic box based on the sizes of the famous RAF "Gibson" kite but more efficient by making it rhomboid. It also has jibs to make it simpler to put together. There will be a choice of colours and whether you would like to applique a design onto the face of the kite or leave it plain. The kite can be sparred in either 6mm lightweight fibreglass or carbon. The cost of each kite will be light grp @ £55 or carbon @ £70. The kit contains pre-cut panels and carbon spars, a choice of applique design/colour and full printed instructions as well as hands on help on the day. The kite flies well in light to fresh winds. With a different set of spars to make it square it will also fly in much stronger winds. As with previous years it will be a one day workshop where the kite will be finished and flown by the end of the day although the room will be available for the weekend. Also as with previous years the workshop should be on Saturday but weather could move it to Sunday if required. You can let us know if you are interested or book a place by contacting us. Please think about colour preferences. Thank you to Margam Park for allowing us to use their facilities.
