Derek Wong of Toronto went from total beginner to expert in record time. He first picked up a balloon in 2011, and is now the 2017 Top Twister. He is a fine example of innovation in our industry, as well as a genuinely super nice guy. Hang out in the Jam Room and get the inside scoop on all these designs, as well as the timeline, and experience of the live reactions to the work once revealed.
Contact Derek on Facebook to get his lecture notes “Think Outside the Tube” which includes a version of the turtle seen above.
