International kite master Basir Beria, a specialist in Afghan fighter kites, was the kite master on location for the making of the movie, The Kite Runner. In this workshop, the master shares his knowledge of this Afghan art form and teaches participants how to make an Afghan fighter kite.

Using bamboo and tissue paper participants will assemble and decorate their own kite, which will then be flown on the UCLA campus.
