Magic workshops are fun and educational, allowing everyone taking part to learn basic magic skills. Magic encourages people to develop practice skills, concentration skills and to help build confidence by learning and presenting a selection of easy to do tricks. The participants will be required to provide the materials needed to perform the magic and they will be shown how make up their own tricks from items that can be found in most households. A selection of those attending will be able to perform some of the tricks at the end of the event.
