Coming in October: Lecture by Garrett Thomas

When: Wednesday, October 12, 2016
Where: Yu-Ai Kai Community Center

Garrett is known for being an innovator as well as one of the top card, coin, and ring manipulators. His original effects, extreme technical skills, and keen understanding of human psychology culminate in highly visual, entertaining, and often enlightening routines. Garrett has produced several instructional books and videos on the subjects of coin, card and ring manipulation, and creating magical moments. This month he brings his magic and knowledge to Ring 216 for a special lecture and workshop.

WORKSHOP: 5:00 - 7:00 PM
The workshop will consist of a blend of both finger ring magic and a focus on Garrett's imagination coins routine. (In order to work on the finger ring material during the workshop please bring your own ring -- ideally one easily removed from your own finger.) As a special for workshop attendees only Garrett will offer his imagination coins package for only $30 (regular retail price of $40).

Workshop cost: $30 for paid Ring 216 members, $45 for non-members.
