skybums 2023 quality high performance kites handmade in shropshire since 1986
welcome to skybums online
2023 should see the return to some form of normality with being able to fly together again at festivals. We hope everyone is safe and well and look forward to seeing you all in the coming months. We are filling in the dates on the calendar page as they are announced.
We are ran a kitemaking workshop at Margam again. This years kite was the Suruga, a traditional Japanese kite sparred in the Ohashi style. Click on the workshop button on the calendar page to find out more.
In the meantime we offer a sale. Hopefully you will find something that takes your fancy.

On a lighter note we were proud to be part of The Hatchling project that finally took place over the weekend of 28th/29th of August last year. We were engaged to build the flying "skin" of the adult dragon in November 2019. We were also part of the Transformation, Flying and Recovery teams on the Hoe in Plymouth. A link to a short official video on youtube by Trigger, the production company, can be found here. 

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