Fabric/Rope Drop Analysis and Development with Charlie Faraday

$50/person or $85 for both Charlie Faraday Workshops

This workshop provides an introduction to the study of drops on fabric or rope, and guides advanced students through the development of new drops and new drop variations. Why drops work, how they work, and what can go wrong are studied in detail, as are safe methods for testing wraps and escaping poor execution of a drop. In addition, body position is studied in detail to learn how it affects speed and quality of drops. Methods for creating and safely testing drops are presented while students are first tasked with developing their own variations on common drops, then advance to creating brand new drops that are uniquely theirs.

Required Materials: Notebook, pen/pencil

Optional Materials: Phone/other video-recording device, doll/figure and ribbon (several will be available)
