    ORGANIC BALLOON DESIGN COURSE

    CHRIS HORNE

    THURSDAY 19TH MARCH 2020

    Testwood Stadium, Salisbury Road, Totton SO40 2RW


    Course Details:

    In this very popular class, the misapprehension that Organics need to be complicated will be busted. Chris has developed a system of three simple but golden rules which will enable you to create the right look with the minimum effort in the shortest time – making Organic designs profitable for all. You will discover simple ways to create the most popular Organic designs including Topiaries, Demi-arches, hoops, Garlands and Clouds. It is often thought that Organic design is a case of sizing each balloon individually, and therefore very time consuming – but this class will show that methods and formulae can be applied, making the whole process simple, quicker and easier! (Prior completion of a Level 1 course or equivalent is essential, and completion of a Level 2 course is preferable.)

    Easy Organics Design Course 

    with Chris Horne

    23rd June 2020


    Location - Castleford Tigers RLFC, Wheldon Road, Castleford, WF10 2SD

    Date - 23rd June 2020

    Time - 10am to 4pm

    Includes - Lunch and Refreshments


    Course Details:

    In this very popular class, the misapprehension that Organics need to be complicated will be busted. Chris has developed a system of three simple but golden rules which will enable you to create the right look with the minimum effort in the shortest time – making Organic designs profitable for all. You will discover simple ways to create the most popular Organic designs including Topiaries, Demi-arches, hoops, Garlands and Clouds. It is often thought that Organic design is a case of sizing each balloon individually, and therefore very time consuming – but this class will show that methods and formulae can be applied, making the whole process simple, quicker and easier! (Prior completion of a Level 1 course or equivalent is essential, and completion of a Level 2 course is preferable.)
