A short course designed to provide offices working remotely to have an opportunity to gather online and do something fun. Balloon modelling is especially good at this because it provides a platform for comedy judging of each other deformed balloon modelling attempts. I will take you through the basic techniques of balloon modelling before splitting people into teams to try and do their own version. We will reconvene to compare the chosen champion of each team and what they have created. We will do this for 3 different basic balloon models and have a lot of fun in the process. 1) Basic balloon twisting techniques 2) The Dog 3) A flower 4) Letters - team spelling challenge The format of the course is that I will demonstrate each part and then split the group into different teams for each challenge, allowing different team members to bond with different people they work with. We will then have a discussion about each challenge culminating in some gentle teasing about everyone's balloon modelling attempts. You will need to book this at least 2 weeks in advance to give everyone the opportunity to order a balloon pump and some balloon modelling balloons. Alternatively, I can organise this and send a starter pack to all participants, for an additional fee. No experience necessary. Open to everyone except those with a latex/rubber allergy (they can still take part as part of the judging panel).
You will need to book this with enough time to buy the raw materials and distribute them to your team. This will mean they need a balloon pump and a bag of balloons each. Please contact me for more details of exactly what is needed and where to get it from. Please note this is not suitable for someone who is afraid of loud noises (balloons popping) or allergic to rubber, however they can still join in as a member of the judging panel for comedy effect.
I was a professional freelance circus arts performer for 10 years and ran my own entertainment agency. I have worked all over the UK and taken many team-building workshops with this format and with circus skills workshops. See my other listing where I do a 3 ball team building workshop. I have been to many balloon modelling conventions across Europe and was the co-founder of the first-ever British Balloon Modelling convention in 2007.

About Me

A man of many talents I have had an unusual career path and I have enjoyed every minute of it.

PHILOSOPHY - I love teaching intro philosophy seminars and have collected my favourite two here with loads of really fun and thought-provoking thought experiments. The hallucination course is all about mind and perception and how direct our contact with the outside world is.

CHARITY - My setting up a Charity and Fundraising course will go over the basics of how to get started with creating and running a charity. Looking at what types of charities there are and the different ways of managing them and fundraising.

BALLOON MODELLING - You can learn some really fun basic balloon models on my balloon modelling course.

TEAM BUILDING - You can also book the Balloon Modelling activity and 3 ball juggling as a Team Building Session. So please check out my FREE 30mins intro courses, or book onto my longer paid course and get in touch if you have any questions.

Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time
