Introduction to Balloon Twisting

This class is your introduction to the seriously silly art of balloon twisting! Get started with a basic dog, and you'll quickly be moving on to fancier animals, flowers, and hats that will delight the children of all ages in your life.

We'll also discuss the wide world of balloon twisting -- where artists like your instructor construct elaborate sculptures from hundreds or even tens of thousands of balloons.
