In early May we once again ran number of kite-making workshops in local schools in the run up to Hullabaloo in conjunction with iWatch Wildlife, with funding from Down To The Coast.

We introduced the children to Shademakers as a company and let them try on headdresses etc.

Tina Whitmore, from iWatch Wildlife then introduced the children to concept of “Species of the Month”. Each school had been allocated a species which was discussed and the children were later asked to decorate their kites with images representing these species eg hedgehogs, stag beetles & swifts.

If you would like Shademakers to run a workshop in your school, please email
