Poi is a performance art using a ball or two suspended from a length of string held in the hand and swung in circular patterns. Poi originates from the Maori people of New Zealand and has since developed many forms enjoyed world wide as a hobby, exercise or performance art along side juggling and other forms of object manipulation.
I can provide all the materials necessary for the public to learn how to create their own poi and show them how to use them.
The poi I teach to make are called practice poi, which are soft and very easy to use.
I have lots of fabulous material for a large spectrum of choice in design. All poi are created with no sewing involved so that all ages can create a set of poi with ease.
I have a simple pattern for creating a pair of poi - and a quick lesson on how to use them.
The skills to use them are easily learnt by all ages.
Each person/child can create and design their own set of poi to take home with them.
