(1/4) > >>

Graham Lee:
Colin that multi award winning balloon artiste on balloon chat has kindly offered to answer the questions for us next week, so apart from the standard questions if anyone has others they would like to ask then please fire away. Colin can you add your Facebook and website details here? Thanks.


1, What road led you into balloon modelling?

The M55 to Blackpool!  We had a family day out in Blackpool and we saw someone stood in the shopping centre selling balloon models.  We bought a couple for our daughter and I thought I could probably manage to make something like that so bought some balloons and had a go!

After a few months of inactivity, I  picked up the balloon pump again and made some models for my daughters 3rd birthday party.  The reaction from the other kids and parents was great and convinced me to go for it!

2, when did you get started with balloons?

The Blackpool trip was in August 2012, the Party was February 2013, I started trading properly in April and won my first award in May! (Thanks Graham :-P)

3, What’s your best twisting experience?

I can't remember when or where it happened, but seeing a little boy being so excited while I was making his monkey on a tree that he couldn't stand still and was jiggling all over the place!

4, What is the worst thing that has ever happened to you during a ballooning/entertaining session?

I had a short spell where I'd finish a model and be drawing on the artwork, but for some reason still unknown the pen kept popping the balloons!

Graham Lee:
In Blackpool it could have been Bob Wooding that you saw in the shopping centre?

I've just googled him and I don't think it was.
