Hailed as one of magic’s most revered creators ‘and performers, we’re pleased to welcome Guy Hollingworth for three intensive 90-minute lessons and then, at the end, a Zoom chat with all attendees.
The thrust of Masterclass: Live is to give you a front-row seat across from Guy Hollingworth, who will cover an array of published AND unpublished material using cards and small props. Hollingworth’s sleight-of-hand magic is influential and innovative, and in addition to the magic he covers, you’ll have a chance to learn about his approach to technique in general, and learn how
he makes everything look so natural and effortless.
With Masterclass: Live we strive to select the very best exponents of sleight-of-hand magic and pair them with a platform perfectly suited for learning remotely. We’re improving the technology with every outing, and we’re particularly excited about having Hollingworth as a guest teacher. He is a detail-oriented instructor, and is as affable and effective teaching his work as he is onstage performing it.
