Circus Art Workshop: Sock Poi Creation

Join circus artist Regan Collins to make and decorate your own sock poi! This workshop introduces one of the most beginner-friendly circus arts: poi spinning! Originated by Māori, the term “poi” refers to both the performance art and the weighted objects these artists twirl to create beautiful visual patterns. Participants will learn how to create their own practice poi, as well as a few basic techniques to start spinning.
