At Infinite Kites we specialise in making kites, running festivals, events and educational kite projects throughout the UK. The kite work is led by Pauline Taylor and Frances Anderson who each make their own kites and receive invitations annually to travel to kite festivals and events in other parts of Europe.
We have been making and flying kites for over 15 years and we regularly run kite projects, festival, events and kite-making workshop sessions. We can provide Kites in Schools, Kites in the Curriculum, Kites with older people, Family Learning Kite Projects
We can supply your kite workshop needs, running workshops in school, community centres, youth centres, homes for older people
We have delivered a number of projects over the years involving kites. For more information on these projects please visit the kite project archive page.

Kite Artists at Infinite Kites
Infinite Arts specialises in kite-making, kite projects and kite festivals and this work is led by Pauline Taylor with support from Frances Anderson, Joy Sanders and others. More information on the kite artists can be found on 'our kites' page.
Kites can cross the divide between arts and science. They can support the teaching of mathematics and can help introduce the history and geography of other countries and other cultures. Kites can be the channel for learning and communication between different ages and different cultures. There is opportunity for action research alongside traditional research and study of the subject. Much of the learning can take place out of doors and it will have happened before the learners have realised they are learning. In a recent project in New Hartley First School, teacher Pete Sturrs commented that during the 2 day project, his year 4 pupils had learned more maths in the two days than the curriculum requires them to cover in a year.
Infinite Kites is in touch with kite artists from different countries who often visit major international kite festivals in the UK. We are committed to developing collaborative working relationships with a broad range of partners including the Drachen Foundation (based in Washington State USA) who sometimes support our projects with specialist materials.
