Would you like to expand you balloon Idea’s knowledge and experiences with other like
minded balloon artistes/entertainers in a warm and very friendly atmosphere?

If Yes then these days are definitely for you, Or for a small one off fee you could become
a member of “The Balloon Artistes Guild” More details are on the UK Twister Club page

The care & share days have been running very successfully for the past eleven years all over the UK.
The idea for the days is for everyone to enjoy themselves while expanding their balloon knowledge.
The days are designed for everyone, from the novice, beginner and experienced twister and the
balloon decorator, as we all have something to share and to give back to our great community.

People from the balloon world are some of of the most sharing and giving people around who are
more than willing to share their skills with others. There is a special bond in the balloon community
family so you will be amazed at what is shared and everyone is guaranteed to learn something.

So why not take the plunge and join us on these truly great and exciting days to expand your
knowledge of our great “BALLOON ART”. The days become more like a social get-together,
so much that after the day, why not join us for a meal, everyone is most welcome.

Graham organised and started to run the days in April 2005,
& so far has run over 100 successful days.

“I’ve learnt more with you in one day, than I have in the last five years” Carol

“What a great day” Kevin

“I have lots of new ballooning ideas” Barry

“So many friendly helpful people” Anne

“Just wanted to thank you for putting on such a great day, Very inspirational” Mike

“OOWWW!!!!! My head hurts. So many models and so many ideas.
I am just glad I took my camera along to remind me of some of them” Stuart

“I had an amazing day. I bought a load of balloons the next day as the Jam
really got me excited about balloon modelling” Robert

“A thousand thanks for all your help and kindness today, I am now truly hooked on twisting.
It was also great to meet the other twisters, such generous happy people” Cate

“Thank you for your expert tuition today” Philip

“We learnt loads and had lots of laughs, just what the doctor ordered!
Its great fun and a lovely friendly atmosphere. And more to the point,
we learn some really cool balloons and tips” Sharon

“Thanks for such a great day. I am not sure what I was expecting
but I was certainly delighted and impressed with what I experienced. I learned some new designs and
some amendments to ones I already use which will make them easier, quicker or more pleasing
(or any combination of the three). I also learnt what I was doing wrong when I tried to snap balloons off –
I couldn’t do it at all but now I can with ease and I shall be reminded of the day every time I do this from now on” Richard

“To anyone that has seen Graham Lee listings of The Balloon Jam/Workshop days and thought that as a decorator they would either not benefit from attending or would not be welcomed, think again. We attended the day yesterday and had one of the best days we have ever had from the moment we arrived at 10.oo until we were finally evicted at 6.oo. We just kept learning new tricks the professional twisters were so keen to show off there work and then happy to teach us how to do it. If you see Graham advertising one of these days and you can get to it, then do. You will be welcomed and you will learn things that you can use in the future” David & Karen Cartwright

“If You’re Prepared To Learn Off Those
Who Know More Than You.

Then You Should Be Prepared To Teach
Those Who Know Less Than You”
