Fundraiser Workshop: Playing With Fire
May 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$30
Learn how to get started with fire toys while avoiding the rookie mistakes that can lead to getting burned (or worse).
This workshop will go over the safety procedures and basic know-how for working with fire toys such as poi, staff, fans, and any manipulation apparatus that utilizes burning wicks. Fire eating and breathing will be touched on briefly, but as these are specialized skills they will not be covered in-depth.
The content will be aimed at people with little to no knowledge or experience. We’ll have a hands-on segment to give you the opportunity to experience the heat and sound of lit props.
Anyone wishing to do the hands-on portion must come dressed in all natural fabrics- cotton, wool, leather, rayon/viscose, linen, etc. Since almost all modern clothing includes some spandex or similar, check the tags to make sure your garments are at least 85% natural.
Be prepared to take notes- there’s a lot that goes into minimizing the risk of playing with fire.
All profits from this fundraiser class will be split between Nova Ukraine and the ACLU.
