Paper Conjuring: Storytelling with Eddie
Create and tell your own stories using techniques of paper magic
November 19 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm EST
Confetti Eddie is a member of the Society of American Magicians from Dallas, Texas who believes that paper magic can make the world a better place, and he’s here to show you how to do it. Eddie uses paper to create magic and tell stories. In this workshop, he will be teaching how to make transformative, slowly expanding and metamorphosing paper folding and cutting patterns that you can use to tell your own (or an already favorite) story, for an audience large or small, of adults or children. Attendees will learn various paper folding techniques, and how to make and tell a paper magic story–Eddie will explain elements such as story structuring, timing, what to prepare in advance, and how to engage your audience. His unique form or paper art is both inspirational and magical.
Confetti Eddie specializes in paper magic. He is a professional magician and master of ceremonies who often performs his own solo shows, and also hosts a magic variety show. He has developed special storytelling techniques by using papercutting to support the characters, images and ideas he is presenting. Eddie says: “I love magic because it makes me and others feel good. I believe magic can inspire the world.” We’re excited to have Eddie show us how to tell dramatic stories by using papercutting! https://confettieddiemagic.com/
