In case you haven’t heard, something really big is coming to Maker Expo this year! Kayloth, the Water Dragon is one of our largest sponsored exhibits for 2016. She will be brought to life in the wee hours of Saturday morning, right outside Kitchener City Hall inside the fountain! This installation is being lead by none other than Mr. Drew Ripley. However, a balloon sculpture of this scale (and difficulty) cannot be done alone, so he’s recruited a couple of his very talented balloon twisting friends to help.
We’re here to give you a spotlight on two balloon twisting ringers: Lisa McIntire and Derek Wong. Theses two incredibly talented balloon artists will be travelling in from out of town to lend their expert skills to the project. We asked them a few questions so you could get to know a little more about the folks who create these amazing air-filled displays.
