This is a 5 day hands-on workshop in conjuring. There will be loads of exercises in misdirection, dramatic and deceptive structure, as well as in prop making. We will examine magic theories, apply them and discuss them in the context of performances. The course is suitable for those with moderate experience as well as experts. We will work from early morning to late night and you’ll find it both challenging and rewarding.
The workshop is led by Tom Stone, who is the author of several technical books on conjuring arts, as well as a performer, consultant, speaker, creator and teacher of the subject. He was awarded the 2015 Creative Fellowship by the Academy of Magical Arts.
For the lessons in propmaking, you will meet Tim Star, legendary propmaker for Harries Magic, Rings-N-Things and Creations by Star.

- Be able to practice and apply misdirection, dramatic techniques and non-linear methods.

- Be able to cogently discuss, research and experiment with colleagues in both magic and related artistic fields.
