skybums 2016 quality high performance kites handmade in shropshire since 1986
welcome to skybums online
2016 is our 30th year in the business and we are in the process of updating the site so you will notice a few changes and additions over the course of the season. We will be running a workshop again at the Margam Kite Festival. This year it is the powerpack, a simple lifter/pilot kite based on our ever popular 6pack. To see more details and photos of previous workshops click on the Margam button on the Calendar page. We were also lucky enough to be invited to teach two workshops at the Fort Worden kitemakers conference at Warm Beach in Washington State, USA this March. To see photos of what was made please click on the Gallery button on the Workshops page. More photos have also been added to the projects page which shows not only kite projects, both private and promotional, but others projects we have worked on for shows and stage sets. This year to celebrate our 30th anniversary we are producing a limited edition the telephone box and police box which were originally designed purely as workshop kites. You will find them on the specials page.


We will be holding the Shropshire Kite Festival on the weekend of 23rd/24th July.

We hope you enjoy your visit to this site. Please come again soon.
