heres a reasonably up to date list of some workshoppery:



Rob:



Tangly Fun

Ways you can make yourself and your poi knot up: for all levels. Includes; how to understand an airwrap; pretending to do something hard; fake knots; and negative space stupidity.



sequence building(with meg)

1 or more sticks.

does exactly what it says on the tin. most fun in twos and threesomes ;o)







Meg:



Stolen Spinning.

One and two staffs.

Tricks stolen (or at least borrowed) from martial arts, baton twirling, devil

sticking and club manipulation. Nun-chuck moves, martial stances, and

glowsticking moves have also been stolen. There may pop in some cane

manipulation too.



Technical Spinning for Doubles.

Two staffs.

This workshop will teach doubles spinning touching on a lot of basic concepts

like anti-spin, isolations, pendulums, hugs, weave spinning, butterfly

spinning, one beat patterns, manipulation techniques and flowers.







Drew:



Introduction to Musicality

Aimed at poi or staff, but can be with any Prop

For any level, especially beginners and super geeky tech heads who like to stand on one spot and so difficult tricks.

1.5 - 2 hours

Covers:

How to add a connection to music to your spinning

and how to understand music aimed at non musicians. In a way that will totally help your spinning.

You need this workshop



Poi/Staff/Manipulation Battle Workshop

we had 50 poiple doing this at ueberpoi, and it was A LOT of fun (look at the pictures of uberpoi!!)

Everybody from beginners up to the teachers. You don't need talent, complete beginners are brilliant, you need that ability to be silly.

A bit like a friendly team breakdance battle/jam, with extra silly fun.

friendly ok: http://community.webshots.com/photo/401080213/401096775fEeLzl
br>
This is to help us Brits get over that feeling that a lot of us have... That are a bit tooo shy about SHOWING our stuff. This is about learning performance skills and getting over that feeling of being nervous.

(The workshop has no spectators.)





Cole:



oobabasics:

a discussion of wrist technique, plane control and circle placement leading onto an introduction to flowers, isolations, stalls, pendula and spinning inside out



speed variation and polyrhythm poi:

ways to vary the speed of your poi and the theory and technique behind spinning and creating patterns with poi going at different speeds





i finally wrote the blurb for my workshops redface



see some of you guys at the weekend (after SYNERGY ON FRIDAY!!! biggrin bounce2 biggrin).

Posted:hey g smile

the workshop i gave at play is kind of the first part of the 'oobabasics' workshop (the first 5-10 minutes of it i reckon).

the rest of the stuff i'm teaching are slightly barstardised versions of two of my uberpoi workshops.

with added bits of course smile

Posted:Hi everyone

Just to let you know, we have somewhere in mind for the Saturday night burn which shouldn't be to dodgy biggrin
What's that? last minute organisation! no surely not ubblol

Fluffster, if there's space at mine you're welcome to a corner, we'll have to see who turns up of those who've requested floor space. There will also be a couple of other houses with crash space available that haven't been advertised yet just in case there is an overflow and we can't fit you all in so those of you without floor space booked already need not worry.

See you all Friday/Saturday/Sunday (delete as appropriate)

Posted:I really want to do some kick ass fire spinning for a change on saturday or sunday night. Could somebody bring a video camera? Cos I wanna make a video! I never make videos as anything other than tutorials, and I want that to change! (CHANGE!) So I would be most appreciative if somebody will film me. And if not, I'm going to jump on the first camera I see, put my own mini DV in it and then steal it back at the end of the night.... tongue

please?

Posted:Hey people
Just a quick annoucement to make about this weekend.
For those staying at my house, if you could, where possible, bring a sleeping bag (or something) with you that would be cool. We have some spare but not enough for everyone so....
Also (and probably more importantly) we have a cat so if any of you are allergic we may need to arrange swaps with other houses.
I am happy to meet anyone making there way into Nottingham over this weekend so if you want to send me a pm with details of where you are going to turn up and at what time I'll make sure I get to you.
Beth, 13:00 shouldn't be a problem. Are you coming by train?

Much love to you all
G.
