Hoop tech workshop with Lisa and Callum (1.5 hrs)
Lisa and Callum joined forces three years ago, bringing Callum’s juggling skills to Lisa’s multi-hoop skills, they have balanced out to be a hoop juggling, multi hoop force to be reckoned with. They have been performing at various conventions, corporate events and circus shows including the European Juggling Convention in the Netherlands and Poland. They have both been training for around ten years, and strive to experiment with partner hooping techniques, and hula hoop juggling.
Another amazing hoop workshop TBC (1.5 hrs)
Hoop Fitness and warm up with Sally Cox (45 mins)
Join Sally from Hoop Shaker for an energetic start to the day! Get your pulse racing, break a sweat and smile! 25mm MDPE hoops are best for this session in which we’ll work hard and play hard! Suitable for complete beginners to those who are more advanced and may not get to wiggle a heavier hoop anymore. Don’t forget, these are the hoops your hoop heroines and heroes started with long ago, back when hooping began to hit our shores.
Sally hopes this session rekindles or introduces a love of those big old hoops so often shunned by new hoopers.
Sally has been teaching for fun and fitness for 10 years based on the South Coast in Southsea, Hampshire.
Intro to mandala drawing with Amanda (45 mins)
Amanda lives in the Studio in the Sky in Brighton where she makes patterns and illustrations using computers and paintbrushes. She has a degree in Fine Art Screen Printing from Chichester University and an HND in Architectural Stained-Glass Techniques from the North East Wales Institute.
Her work has been featured as part of the Brighton’s Alternative Art Trail and recently she was shortlisted for the Make it in Design Scholarship and Martlets Snail Space. Along with being a mother and grandmother, Amanda is a mindfulness practitioner who runs art groups and mandala workshops for stress reduction. She has held mandala-drawing workshops in the UK and Spain where she taught free flow mandala drawing for meditation.
In 2017, she finished a 1000-day drawing challenge where over the course of three years she completed one drawing every day. This challenge inspired a deep connection with the creative process and helped her on my path to artistic happiness. Amanda has also been hulahooping since 2011.
Yoga with Tom Creed (45 mins)
Tom has been practicing yoga for over ten years and teaching for six, and is qualified with a 500 hour certification from the Vajrasati school in Brighton.
