Meg, will the white t-shirt be auctioned off after the workshop? Once the paths of contact have be drawn sticks will be magically attracted!

Which makes a walk in the woods rather dangerous...



Well, as long as I don't draw on the t-shirt in brown... it should be alright... it's just everything that's black or orange that you're going to have to worry about...

I think anybody willing to stand up and have me draw on them for an hour can keep the t-shirt as a reward. ubblol

Was cool to meet you at SL dude.
Even if I did only really chat to you before the festival had technically started.

Bring on Play!

looking for a safety / environment expert

hi guys,

I intend to do some shooting about the issues of safety and environment concerning fire-poi spinning. That's why I am looking for some sort of expert that would volunteer to do a short interview, shows how to shake off properly and shows how to prepare for a show.

Anybody interested in volunteering? ubbrollsmile

boddhi, durbs

great to hear that you are interested

maybe you even want to help out together? shooting would take between three and four hours and it might be a little easier for the two of you if you work together?

just an idea smile

Actually, I doubt anyone's quite that mean.. At least, I hope no-one is..
