Coded Kites
Wednesday 2 & 30 August

Be inspired by an unusual way of storing documents. These 16th-century wills were rolled up and tied together by string, creating the appearance of a kite tail. Join us to have a go at creating your own kite before writing a secret message to attach to the string.
