Circus Skills Workshop
Circus skills workshops are great for school events, fundays and parties.
They begin with a brief demonstration of all the skills on offer, along with a quick introduction on how to perform that particular activity.
For school events, the different skills are then placed at particular locations around the room, as stations. The children are then divided into groups of four or five and sent to a station where they attempt that activities for the duration of a song. At the conclusion of the song; they move around the room to the next station where they try the next skill. Once all the skills have been attempted, the children can go to whichever activity they prefer.
For small groups, the children are left to attempt whatever activity they wish to practice, while Stephen goes around the room, helping the children develop that particular skill.
The skills taught include: Plate Spinning, Peacock Feather Balancing, Juggling Silks, Juggling Balls, Trick-Sticks, Yo Sticks, Pogo Jumpers, Kendama, Flying Discs, Diablo, Hula Hoops, Yo Yo's, Bucket Stilts, Stilt Walking and Wobble Boards.
The best skills will be selected for your event depending on ceiling height, amount of space, severity of wind, age of the children, number of participants etc.
Circus skills workshops do require space to practice in and are best in open spaces like school and village halls.
The workshop can cater for up to 60 children (based on the amount of equipment available) and usually last for an hour. Adults and teachers are also encouraged to try the activities themselves.

After School Clubs
I also offer after school club sessions. These run for six to eight weeks, immediately as school ends in the school hall. A teacher will need to be present at the sessions.
The first week is usually an introductory session where we try all the activities. The following weeks usually specialize on two of three activities teaching particular tricks as appropriate for the age in attendance.
Contact me for a price for the after-school workshops as it varies, especially on travelling distance.
Amazing Stephen has been Balloon Modeling since 1996 and has produced several products teaching others of his designs.

Stephen is often hired at shopping centres, grand openings and events to make balloons for all the guests. He has been known to make over 300 models in a single day! It is the most popular walk-around activity he provides.
Balloon Modelling Workshops
He also offers Balloon Modelling workshops where he teaches children and adults how to make simple designs such as a dog, cat, rabbit, giraffe and sword. These workshops normally last for an hour and are better suited to small groups. Stephen provides all the balloons, pumps and tuition and they get to take home all the balloons that they make.
A one-hour workshop is £165, two-hours is £225 with each additional hour £50 thereafter.
