Tutorial Tuesdays

Be prepared to get technical because each Tuesday will bring a new tutorial. The props will vary, but it’s always good to cross-train.

Discovery Wednesdays

Hump day deserves a little distraction and inspiration. Learn about various props and flow arts areas of discipline as well as different methods and ways practitioners fuel their growth and development.

Not your average listicle. Every Thursday, we will bring you tips and tricks from flow artists around the world on a variety of topics from keeping your props fresh to running your own spin communities.
