“Do not be afraid of opposition. Remember, a kite rises against, not with the wind.” Hamilton Mabie.
I have been researching traditional Khmer kite making for the children’s art workshops I am running. The problem though has been, finding a traditional kite maker in the region. It seems a few years ago there was a national kite festival but alas no more. So in pondering this dilemma I was alerted to what the kids at the roadside were making today…kites!
Out of a carrier bag, some basket making cane, thread, a lighter and an incense stick for sealing the cane joints the kids showed me what I needed to know. A very good reason for taking your time in Cambodia, walking sometimes instead of tuk tuking, you may well learn just the right things you need to.
