Twistinais based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire but regularly travels all around the UK, twisting balloons at events & promotions, parties & festivals. The journey distance to and from postcode OX14 2PF will be reflected in the travel costs. Parties and shorter events may not be considered viable if too far away.
Absolutely! Twistina has 5 Million pounds public liability insurance & can supply you with health and safety risk assessment.
At public or large events, it is not possible to provide a balloon for everyone. Twistina will try to judge the demand & allowing for the time constraint of the booking, choose the sophistication of the sculptures in accordance.
At parties / smaller events, if a balloon model is required for every guest, it is imperative that the client and Twistina have agreed on how many people are in attendance. This is necessary to fulfil everyone within the specified time & to provide the best service. Extra pre-made balloon sculptures may be made by prior arrangement if numbers are larger than the artiste can cater for. If the number of guests exceeds the agreed amount, it may be possible for the artiste to work extra time at the appropriate rate if formally agreed.
Yes! Latex balloons are made from the sap of the rubber tree which is a completely natural substance. It breaks down when exposed to the elements of nature, decomposing at about the same rate as an oak leaf.
Twistina’s performance is not done as a stage show but rather as an interactive, entertaining spectacle either in mix & mingle style or in a fixed location.
If more than one balloon twister or further children’s entertainment is required, her partner Twistopher presents balloon modelling using many of Twistina’s designs, kids’ magic, barrel organ music and Punch & Judy puppet shows.
Twistina and Twistopher may also be able to help with finding quality face painters.
Children of any age can choke on balloons if they breathe them in while trying to blow them up, or if they chew on deflated or broken balloons. Very young children are more prone to choking injuries because they put things in their mouths & their airways are so small that they can easily get plugged.
No, Twistina is very much a family orientated entertainer & as such will only make balloon art that is family friendly. In any case, adults just love the stuff she makes, so there is no need!
