FlowShop: Poi Workshop w/ Zack Streit
October 25, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us every Tuesday from 6:30-9:00 at Phinney Neighborhood Association in Community Hall for FlowShop! (More location details below.) We bring the space, you make the shapes.
FlowShop is thrilled to present the second workshop of our season:
** Poi Flow-Tech-Shop with Zack Streit **
Zack is a flow artist that focuses on visual tricks and technical ability. He spins poi and juggles, and loves to connect with his props. He finds that flow is a way to physically express his emotion and intention while building up your creativity, and wants to help you better understand your prop to express yourself!
This workshop is for beginner to intermediate poi spinners. Recommended skills to know are 2 and 3 beat weaves, corkscrew, and in-spin tosses.
Class starts shortly after 6:30 and will last until about 7:45. Once the workshop ends, we will transition to an open jam until 9:00!
*If you don’t plan to attend the workshop, please wait until ~7:45pm until arriving so as not to distract from the workshop.
Workshop cost is on a sliding scale/pay-what-you-can basis. Suggested donation is $10-35.

What should I expect at FlowShop?
Friendly faces and welcoming spaces. Open jams are an unstructured time to come together and practice flow arts while building connections and community. Many love teaching. All props, skill levels and movement modalities are encouraged and welcome!
Don’t have a prop of your own? Post to the event and we can bring some props from our community prop library!
How To Find Us at the Phinney Ridge Community Center: Navigate to the Lower Parking Lot and enter the brick building at the doorway at the bottom of the stairs. Once inside, go down the stairs and to the left.

Donations keep us spinning! We believe in creating spaces that are financially accessible and also believe that artists deserve to be paid. Your donation to FlowShop helps support fair wages for working artists and covers the cost of renting the space.
