Kite Kinetics workshop at the Australind Library
Mike Alvares flew into the library on a kite…. no we’re only joking but he did bring his impressive kites and kite making skills to the library on a sunny Wednesday afternoon. 20 children and their parents enjoyed making their own kites with help from Mike, hearing about the history of kites, and how he came to be a kite specialist. People passing by stopped to look as a giant blue whale and fish hovered over the library, while the kids practiced flying the kites they made themselves to see if they could catch the whale. It was a fun day for all, thank you Mike for yet another fantastic workshop.
