Do you use special balloons?

Yes! I only ever use the very finest quality balloons in the World: Qualatex balloons. They are made especially for twisting sculptures and are stronger than the regular balloon you buy on the high street. Their colours are bold and vivid making them the perfect material for me to use.

How long do the balloons last?

That’s very difficult to answer! Usually, any balloon lasts comfortably for a few days but they can last up to a few weeks if treated with care. The key is to keep them out of direct sunlight and heat sources as this increases the deflation process. Generally, the greater the care given to the balloon, the longer it will last. I am sure that you will find that, however long it lasts, you will have a truly memorable and unique gift.   The fact that a balloon will not be around for long is actually part of its attraction. People realise that the art is temporary and it gives it a little bit of an edge – a ‘special’ feel.

Where did you learn to make these balloons?

I am a magician and I learnt how to make balloons early on to compliment my shows. I remember being a confident balloon twister at 12 years old but I, like most other magicians, produced only simple balloon dogs and swords. But when I was a little older, I felt that there must be more to balloons. I searched the internet and found ideas and had to reverse engineer the techniques and learn by myself. Now, I am friends with dozes of balloon artists from across the world including Israel, Canada, USA, Australia and, of course, the UK. We regularly (often daily) teach and share our latest designs with one another – meaning that my material is always fresh and up-to-date.

Where do I pick up the balloons from?

Pick-up is usually reserved for evening times and I am based in Hethersett, Norwich.

Can you deliver the balloons?

Yes, of course! This is at an additional cost and usually only reserved for Norfolk or Suffolk locations. Just ask for a delivery quote!

How do I pay?

Payment is due on exchange of the balloons. You can, if you wish, pay by BACS but this needs to be in advance so that payment is cleared at the time of balloons being received.
