Summary Kites and China are practically synonymous, since these childhood toys were originally invented there before becoming popular around the world. For over 2000 years, kites have been a common sight in China, from the imperial court to the common people, and over that time period the craftsmanship of the kite has been perfected-and includes a diversity and richness of styles. In Chinese Kites, you'll learn not only the history and varied forms of the Chinese kite, but also how to produce, step-by-step, a beautiful Chinese kite of your own! Learn how to: Create the kite's framework Paint colorful designs Master the techniques of putting the painted cover on the framework Fly your creation! With Chinese Kites, you will be able to experience firsthand the joy of seeing a kite you made soaring across the sky.
