Due to the success of our last workshop at Camp Clayton, Ulverstone, we have decided to
go back for another visit.
||Morning Saturday 17th June until 4:00pm Sunday 18th June
||Camp Clayton, Ulverston
||The 2006 theme was Peter Schmidt's beautiful
Firebird. If you are interested in the Firebird, you can download
load the plan from our site, the links provided
below, or print out the metric plan on this page.
To download the
plan, click on the images. The one on the left, with the two
birds, will take Peter Schmidt's original website. The one on the
right will take you to an alternate site that contains some extra
information that could be of help. Both sites are in German but
can be easily translated using the following link...
Schmidt's site, there is an English version of the plan. Just a
word of warning about the plan, unless otherwise stated, on page 2 all
the measurements are in inches. The German plan is in
millimetres. As I have come across a few problems with both the
German and English plans I have tried to create an updated metric
English plan here for members to download for workshop. Please
let me know if you have any changes to add.

Below is another site about the Firebird kite, this time a pictorial journey of making one. The layout is quite a cool one! Click on the picture to take you there, but this time don't worry about the translator, this one is in English! :-)
