Class #1 invites you to experience “Deco Twisting with Balloon Beads”, featuring award-winning, master balloon artist, Ken Stillman. This highly informative and entertaining class will change the way you create decor forever! Imagine the possibilities! Imagine changing a balloon into a bead! Imagine a stack of balloons holding up a table! Imagine large balloon characters supporting solid objects! Imagine concealing electrical cords, pipes, and other structures within the balloons themselves! All of these concepts and much more will be revealed in this class. Amaze your current and future clients! You cannot afford to miss this extremely rare opportunity.

But wait! There’s more!

Class #2

“Twisting Techniques”, Ken will show some of his newest concepts for line twisting. His focus will be on colossal figures that can be completed in three minutes or less! He will also reveal his lightning-fast horse that takes less than 60 seconds from start to finish! In addition, he will be sharing one of his newest creations, “Bubble Heads”. These impressive designs are not for line twisting and may take a little more time, but they are attention-grabbers that will outshine and blow away your competition!

Ken Stillman’s tour is coming here!

Photo from the Brenion JamThanks to everyone who came out to twist with David Brenion last month. It was a blast — he basically held court and showed us some super simple designs and some crazy innovative things that made the balloons scream out in pain. It was fun!

There’s a lot going on at Fantasma for the summer so we’re not having a balloon jam there until September. But don’t worry, we have the solution to your balloon twisting jones:

Ken Stillman is touring the country and will be in the area on September 2nd. The details are being hashed out right now, but it looks like he’ll teach two classes at Tricky Business in Long Island. That’s where we had one of Don Caldwell’s farewell classes, and it was a great space. One of the classes will be on decor (or big) items, and other on twisted pieces to make at gigs. I’ll keep you posted via email, FB, etc. when we know what’s happening. Some newer twisters might not know who Ken Stillman is — trust me, he’s a living legend. His list of innovations and accomplishments is staggering.

That’s it for now. Feel free to post your news and fun links on so everyone can see them.

p.s. don’t leave your balloons outside this month. I have a bag of geos that are fused together. And they smell bad.
