Single Class Course
A short course designed to provide offices working remotely to have an opportunity to gather online and do something fun.
I will teach some basic history of card magic. We will then learn how to shuffle and hold the cards correctly. I will begin the class with an awesome basic coin trick to get everyone warmed up and ready for the magic. We will then learn two or three-card tricks in this session, maybe even a fourth, depending on class size and the time available.
After this class, the group will split off and finish with a magic contest using the skills and tricks they've learned.
Magic is a great way to bring people together, having your friends to bounce ideas off to create your own tricks. Magic takes dedication, concentration and a will to succeed, and these are skills we should all aspire to have. Learning magic in a group allows you to bounce new ideas off each other, come up with new presentations of how a trick could work. All of these skills are transferable to the workplace and a great team-building exercise.
No previous experience is necessary, and all you will need is a complete deck of cards and a few different sized coins.
There is no previous experience or knowledge of any card tricks before you start this course. You will know how a few card tricks work and the mechanics behind them. You will be able to go and impress your family and friends and start your further journey into magic, or just have a few good party tricks. One of the keys to magic is to practice, practice, practice your tricks will only get smoother.
You will need is a complete deck of cards.

Jonathan facilitated a brilliant Card Magic session! He made everyone feel involved AND energised.. breaking the trick down into simple steps that have imprinted on my brain. Although I'm now a one-trick-wonder, who seriously needs practice, I have still been able to impress friend and family.. THANKS : )!!!
Fantastic session, really fun and engaging and now I know some magic! I have shared the trick with family and friends including my brother in Oz on our weekly zoom chat. Johnathan was awesome and so patient and kind. Thank you so much for organising and taking the time to teach us some fun skills.
Really enjoyed this class, well presented, friendly and fun!
Amazing session! Really loved it and then spent the entire weekend perfecting the tricks and showing them to family.
Johnathan was awesome as well, really friendly and had to be incredibly patient :)
Thank you so much
