Silly question!
« on: July 12, 2014, 06:19:55 PM »
This may seem silly, but what exactly does a balloon modeller do?!
I mean if you're busking somewhere, do you stick a bucket down in front of you and start making something and hope someone comes up to put some money in? Do you then give them the model? Or do you wait for someone to approach you before you make something? How about if you're booked for a school fete or similar? Do you approach people and ask if they'd like a balloon?
And what about a party that you have been booked for? How long would you make balloons for at a party? Until everyone has a model?
Sorry for all the questions!, just really intrigued!

No I didn't. Will try now, although when I use forum search functions it only tends to be one word that I search for!!

With busking you may find you need a licence or permission (depending on where you live)
For school fairs, I set myself up somewhere where it a big line of people wouldn't cause a problem, and start twisting.  The kids quickly find you.

With parties I find out how many kids will be there when the person is booking me, and make sure there is enough time to do a balloon for everyone.  If I finish all the kids and still have time left, I do balloons for the adults.

Hope that helps.
Lisa
