Kite-making and flying is a tradition that crosses cultures and races. According to Margo Dalal, one of the organizers of the imminent Detroit Kite Festival, almost every culture has some variation of kiting. Detroit itself once had a vibrant kite-flying community, but as those folks age, it is becoming a dying art. Now, the Detroit Institute of Arts is hosting kite-making workshops that will help spark an interest in the younger generation. Plus, it’s a great lead up to the promised first-ever Detroit Kite Festival on Belle Isle this July.
