Event Series Event Series (See All)
Join us this week for a dragonstaff class taught by Drew Hearthfire! This is an All Levels workshop.


** Training Your Dragon – A Dragonstaff Class! **


This will be an in-depth class on the incredible art of Dragonstaff! Learn the fundamental moves to jumpstart your journey down the path of this amazing prop. The class will be based on the skill level and pre-existing knowledge of the students present, ranging from total beginner to more advanced techniques!

Please bring your own Dragonstaff, extra prop availability is limited. If you don’t have a dragonstaff, here is a link to an instructional video about how to make your own with materials found at any hardware store! https://youtu.be/uYNckrsq3bc


About Drew:Drew Hearthfire has spent most of their life on stage (and behind the scenes) working to bring excitement and joy to people across the world! Dragonstaff is a personal favorite of theirs, and they’re so ready to share what they have learned with you! Drew has spent the past eight years in the Seattle flow community supporting, teaching, and leveling up at Kindle NW, Wildfire, Northwest Flow Fest, FlowShop, Spinurn, SFAC’s own Community Fire Jam and many, many more! They are so excited to be bringing this class to Flowshop for the second time and is so thrilled for you to attend!


***Please be sure to wear a well fitting mask when you come to FlowShop! ***


**Workshop cost is on a sliding scale/pay-what-you-can basis. Suggested donation is $10-35.


There will be an extra dragonstaff or two but availability is extremely limited. Please bring extras to share if you can!


Class starts just after 6:30 and will start with a brief warmup and stretch. It will last until about 7:45. Once the workshop ends, we will transition to an open jam until 9:00pm!


*If you don’t plan to attend the workshop, please wait until ~7:45pm until arriving so as not to distract from the workshop.


FlowShop hosts both workshops and “open jam” style events every Tuesday for movement artists of all sorts to come together for communal practice and play.

Thanks for helping us keep our community safe and accessible to all. We will have extra masks for folks if you forget.

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.

Accessibility: There is a street entrance to the studio space that does not require stairs on Daytona Ave. Enter the double doors of the brick building and turn immediately to your right.

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.

Suggested cost for open jams is $5.
