Kite making (Koinobori Japanese Kite)
20th May 2017
Come along for a fun Saturday of kite designing and learning a bit about Koinobori Japanese Kite.
Koinobori ,meaning “carp streamer” in Japanese, are carp-shaped wind socks traditionally flown in Japan to celebrate Children’s Day (Kodomo no Hi).
Children’s Day takes place on May 5, the last day of Golden Week, the largest break for workers and also a week in which businesses usually close for up to 9–10 days. Landscapes across Japan are decorated with koinobori from April to early May, in honor of children for a good future and in the hope that they will grow up healthy and strong.
This event is run by Mustard Seed, a purpose built space designed for community connection and growth, providing activities, workshops, classes and events to the Woolloongabba community.
