Slinky Manipulation 101: The World’s Newest Flow Art
Slinky manipulation is the art of using one’s hands to send waves of energy through a slinky, often creating the illusion of defying gravity. Since 2014, it has been popularized in several viral videos.
In this playshop, participants will learn to turn their slinky into an energy beam that bounces from hand to hand, use their hands to create a slinky “escalator”, learn to make their slinky bounce off a target and back into their hand, and leave armed with everything they need to practice to become a slinky master! Blacklight-reactive rainbow slinkies will be provided for all participants, and will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the workshop.
