I was a guest of the Sola Kite Club at their 20th anniversary kite festival in Norway at the end of May 2009. Other invited kite makers included Stefan Gudmunds (Sweden) and Kelvin Woods (UK)

A kite making workshop was held at the Sola Kulturhus on the day before the kite festival. Kite artists worked with many adults and children constructing star kites, butterflies, deltas, box kites and Afghan fighting kites.

On the following day hundreds of people converged on the beach with their kites for the main kite flying event. A clear blue sky provided the perfect backdrop for the colourful kites.

The Sola Kite Club founding members - Sveinung Dybvik, Ellen Munkvold and Jens Petter - were fantastic hosts and shared a real passion for making and flying kites.
