DIY Fire Poi, Twirling Staff and other PropsWe understand that not everyone can afford to buy quality pre-made gear. In fact, some people can not afford to even buy some parts or wicks. We do not want any financial issues to stop you from discovering all the benefits from the Performance and Flow Arts.
Our Vision'To help everyone discover and shine in the performance arts.'- So, we chose to sell many of the parts used in manufacturing our products so more people can have access to join in the performance arts. We also sell kits of Fire Fans and Fire Poi with all the gear and instructions to make them yourself.
I strongly believe in our vision that, even if you have no money, there are still ways to make props out of socks, rice, shoelaces, towels, pair of worn jeans, recycled or old items around the home.
DIY instructionsWe have instructions for Fabric Poi , Fire Poi, and even LED Poi. Fire eating torches, Fire Fans, Fire Hoops, Juggling Balls, Cigar Boxes and performance Nunchaku (if legal in your area).

What to use as wick?Kevlar® Wicks are a quality long-lasting product. But there are cheaper options, like an old Bathroom Cotton Towel, Denim Cotton Fabric from a worn-out pair of pants.

What metal parts do I use in making Fire Props?Did you know? Some metals heat up very quickly under a flame and can become a greater burn hazard. Others are brittle and can not take impacts, and some can give off toxic fumes. These are things you should know for your safety!

Safety First!OK, I know it's the last item on this page.
The most important thing to do once you have built your fire prop is to do regular parts inspection. Check for cracks, loose screws, wick coming apart, metal bending out of shape, torn stitching, cracked handle parts. AND you need to be performing safely with safe equipment to protect other people, animals, and property, land or forests from being harmed.
You also need to be ready in case something goes wrong. Have people trained and prepared to help and able to put out a fire and provide first aid.
