Challenge: 

Into the Wild

This kite is made from goose and duck feathers. The spine is split bamboo and the tail extension is a reed. Cotton thread lashes the feathers together. Tacky glue and superglue were used to stabilize the joints

Challenge Details:

Into the Wild

This challenge is all about going out into our natural surroundings, and finding materials growing around us. Before their was ripstop and carbon fiber, there was bamboo, there was leaves, there was a world of materials in front of us! So, go outside, find something and use it to make a kite, kite art, or a wind display.
