Really looking forward to getting this out in the public!
Come along, build a kite, and we will go fly them afterwards.

Community Kite Project is a collaboration between Christopher JarrattJo Peel and Tom Tobia. We believe fun, imagination and the art of making are precious commodities. We would like to share them with as many people as possible.
Running from 1st -7th March, 2012 – Community Kite Project will be holding kite making workshops alongside an exhibition of kites designed and made by Christopher Jarratt and art-worked by some of our favourite UK artists including:

CKP will be hosting a week-long festival of kite making and workshops and evening kite related screenings, including a live stream with Sayamimdu Dasgupta at MIT’s Media Lab on how to build the perfect Indian Fighting Kite! Local community groups, schools, offices, passers-by and families are invited to build a kite each, and the best bit - it's FREE and it’s for everyone! No cost, no catch, just a chance to explore your inner child, get imaginative and make yourself a fully functioning kite to keep. What could be more fun than that?
Opening Night: Thursday, 1st March2012; Space 54, Rivington Street, Shoreditch, London, EC2A 3QN, with the private view opening at 6:30pm. For more details, visit the website at

More info coming soon with some photo's of the kites I'm working on for the show.

Christopher Jarratt vs Sebastian Bergne

A bit of a David vs Goliath firing showdown going on here (me being David..... help!).

"Up for grabs is a chance to own the winner of this minor showing-off contest.So, without further ado…. this weekend we’ll pit the honed and toned athleticism of Sebastian Bergne’s ‘BANDIT’ against the solid sturdy gumption of Christopher Jarratt’s ‘SLINGSHOT’ in a battle of firing skills including; accuracy, distance, impact, and blammo (not sure what that is yet, but we’ll think of something)."

If you’d like to take a punt at securing yourself the winner, each a fine example of British design and fun, then email Spunique with your name and a contact number HERE. The winner will be selected at random on Monday 17 October.
