People from the balloon world are some of of the most sharing and giving people around who are more than willing to share their skills with others. There is a special bond in the balloon community family and you will be amazed at what is shared and everyone is guaranteed to learn something.
So why not take the plunge and join us on these truly great and exciting days to expand your knowledge of our great “BALLOON ART”. The days get more like a social get-together, so much that after the day, why not join us for a meal, everyone is most welcome.

This year there will be an hour from 11.oo till mid-day for those that need a little confidence boosting, with a basic beginners class.
This will run from 1.3o till 2.30 P.M. and will be a different lecturer at each event.
This will run from 3.3o till 4.3o P.M. and will be more advanced than the beginner’s class.
All the lecture/workshops are not compulsory, you’re more than welcome to carry on twisting at the other end of the hall, if you wish. So please come along and join in what is always a really fun day out while expanding your balloon modelling knowledge.
Pricing for the days does vary from "FREE" to a nominal £10 charge if pre booked
with a £10 voucher to spend or £20 if you pay on the day.
Light refreshments will also be available, but please remember to bring the cream cakes with you? The maximum number at all days will be 40. There will also be special offers on all products at the days.
I’ve learnt more with you in one day, than I have in the last five years. Carol
What a great day. Kevin
I have lots of new ballooning ideas. Barry
So many friendly helpful people. Anne
Just wanted to thank you for putting on such a great day, Very inspirational. Mike
OOWWW!!!!! My head hurts. So many models and so many ideas. I am just glad I took my camera along to remind me of some of them. Stuart
I had an amazing day. I bought a load of balloons the next day as the Jam really got me excited about balloon modelling. Robert
A thousand thanks for all your help and kindness today, I am now truly hooked on twisting. It was also great to meet the other twisters, such generous happy people. Cate
Thank you for your expert tuition today. Philip
We learnt loads and had lots of laughs, just what the doctor ordered! Its great fun and a lovely friendly atmosphere. And more to the point, we learn some really cool balloons and tips. Sharon
Thanks for such a great day. I am not sure what I was expecting
but I was certainly delighted and impressed with what I experienced. I learned some new designs and some amendments to ones I already use which will make them easier, quicker or more pleasing (or any combination of the three). I also learnt what I was doing wrong when I tried to snap balloons off – I couldn’t do it at all but now I can with ease and I shall be reminded of the day every time I do this from now on. Richard
To anyone that has seen Graham Lee listings of The Balloon Jam/Workshop days and thought that as a decorator they would either not benefit from attending or would not be welcomed, think again. We attended the day yesterday and had one of the best days we have ever had from the moment we arrived at 10.oo until we were finally evicted at 6.oo. We just kept learning new tricks the professional twisters were so keen to show off there work and then happy to teach us how to do it. If you see Graham advertising one of these days and you can get to it, then do. You will be welcomed and you will learn things that you can use in the future. David & Karen Cartwright
