Kite making is coming to the Roundhouse this April. In partnership with the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival (VCBF), the Roundhouse will host a hands-on workshop in the art of kite making. Facilitated by award winning kite master, Egan Davis, this event is part of a kite series the VCBF has planned for this year.
Egan’s vision for the kite series began several years back. Pink cherry blossom petals drifting in the air reminded him of pink kites. He approached VCBF Executive Director Linda Poole with the idea of flying a thousand pink kites as part of the Cherry Blossom celebration.
“All winter we’re looking down, huddled under an umbrella. Kites make us look up to celebrate cherry blossoms and the beginning of spring.” – Linda Poole
