Kites workshop 24 Augustus from 10am to 4 pm

Up in the air

Creation of extraordinary kites with the French kite designer, Victor Guérithault.
Whether found in the East, in the West, in Europe or on the American continent, the kite is an extraordinary diverse object as much by its forms, its uses as the names it has worn over the centuries.
 
Nowadays, kites are made of composite materials, technical fabrics such as spinnaker, dracon, mylar, carbon and very resistant static yarns. Kites evolve and are recognized as support for educational and sports projects, but also as artistic creation.
The young French designer, Victor Guérithault, is one of the most famous representatives in this area.  He innovates e.g. by using laser cutting and 3D printing !


On Saturday, August 24, the young designer will host a workshop for parents with children. On this occasion, he will explain all about KitesLabs and will help you create kites with different typologies of diverse forms: cubes, prisms, tetrahedrons , rhombuses and squares.
If the weather conditions are favourable, a flight of your self-made kites will take place at the Grand-Hornu late in the afternoon !

Price: 15 € / pers (entrance and workshop included)
