This workshop contains the many ways of how MAGNETS were introduced to develop & design different illusions in magic.

Methods & principles behind the illusions will be presented with many Gimmicks developed from scratch. Many of the tricks will be examined, discussed and built. 

We collected most tricks related to magnets from the Magic castle book archive. Referenced and pages will be included in the course.

This is more than "how to learn tricks" we aim to bring concepts of psychology behind misdirection and the combination of trickery methods in creating illusions. We hope to enhance creativity regardless if you are a magician or not. 

With 4 hours of visual presentation; we are committed to create a clear and comfortable environment for you to follow along.

Who is the target audience?
  • Magicians, artists, inventors
  • Anyone who wants to enhance innovation & creativity from a Magician's perspective
