Anagram Balloon Day at BURTON and burton #anagramballoons

Balloon Class with Chris Horne and Eddie Heyland

What a great day we all had teaching at Anagram Balloon Day. My first time to co-teach with Chris Horne. I hope it wont be the last. We had a full house at burton +BURTON. There were many first time students as well as some seasoned pros!

Anagram balloon day

Chris Horne and I took turns teaching different techniques on how to attach and assemble foil balloons. Together we showed over 15 designs.

Chris Horne diamondz circle

If you use 14 Diamondz it makes a perfect circle.

Foil curves topiary orbs

Using foil curves to make giant air filled topiaries for the ceiling.

magic arch

This is one of the few designs we made using helium. We used packing tape to attach magic arch balloons together on the sides and then attached the letter balloons through the center hole.

foil balloon chandelier

Chris Horne made this stunning chandelier out of one Orbz, some 6 point stars, crescents and heats. A very clever design that can also be turned upside down to float over a table.
