Fantastic Flight

The Gliding Flight
Sunday, September 17 at 11 AM

Children bring your parents to this Paper Airplane Workshop! We will supply the paper and tables to work on. You should come prepared to learn some fabulous new designs. The Gliding Flight is a return to paper airplane basics: one person, one piece of paper, and a few folds later, one airplane. Using a refreshingly innovative approach to designs and flying characteristics, John Collins teaches you to make 20 paper planes, such as the Stealth, the Wind Devil, the Glart, and the Skid Kid.
