Magic School

Magic School

There are between 6 and 16 people on each course, with a minimum age of 16. We have a wide varity of people attending, and we find that they are all very enthusiastic at the end to go out and try what they have learnt!

The course will run over three Saturdays, and will be from 11 am to 3pm. Course materials and notes will be supplied, but not lunch etc.

Please note that tickets are transferable, but not refundable.

If you wish, you can book the course of three lessons on-line, and your space would be reserved on the next course. The days on the course are transferable, so if you wished you could do the first day on one course, and the last two on the next for example. However each day builds on what's taught on the previous one, so we do recommend doing the days in order.

The course is aimed at those looking to gain a good working knowledge of the fundamentals of magic. We will be teaching the technical, presentation and misdirection techniques that are important for all types and levels of magic.

The course will include card, coin, rope, sponge balls plus the classics of cups & balls, as well as other aspects of sleight-of-hand. The important aspects of presentation and misdirection will also be introduced and developed throught the course.
