KITE WORKSHOP SCHEDULE                                                                                                                                                                              This is the main fund raising method for putting on the Cleveland International Kite Festival. In an average year, workshops are scheduled in parks, at schools, club meetings, and events. We do not have sponsors paying for tents, park fees, sound systems, etc. So if you have wondered how this works, call Bob Lockhart, Workshop Coordinator at 216-731-3639.  It takes about 20 minutes to learn how to help a kid make a sled kite. After you've done five, you are an Expert, and we need  more Experts!! Call Bob Lockhart if you can help with any of the CWS at  216-731-3639
