Brasington Stealth Delta Workshop

Recommended Posts

Last weekend I attended a kite building workshop lead by Robert Brasington.  Over the two days I completed building a Stealth Delta kite.  It was a great weekend learning his techniques for building and spending time with other kite builders and friends.  I also purchased the kit to make the Brasington Batty Boy train.  That will be my winter project.  If any of you get a chance to attend one of Robert Brasington's workshops, jump on it.  No matter how experienced you may or may not be, it will be worth it.

I went as well and had a really good time.   I was probably the least experienced kite builder there and managed to make a good looking kite.

I plan on attending the next workshop thats offered.   Robert is an awesome instructor

I’m itching to start making my own kites. Not sure where to start tho... My mom is bringing me one of my grandmother’s old sewing machines (she made draperies for a living). Not sure if it will be good for sewing nylon and poly... I’d love to attend a Robert Brasington workshop someday!

You definitely should try it Bill.   Getting any sewing machine and just practicing is really what is needed.   If you know basic sewing, that's the biggest skill you have to bring to the workshop.

I went to a stealth workshop once. No one knew I was there. I guess I didn't need it.
