It’s something that everyone in the dungeon notices. That rhythmic swoosh back and forth or the crack like a gunshot. Watching it, being a part of it, or at the end of it… is a mixture of fear and fascination. And throwing it - to impart a gentle brush or a strike of lightning. Singletails have a mystique all their own. But is it so difficult to learn?
Join whip aficionados Barak & Marker for a 2 part class as we share some tips and techniques to using a Singletail Whip in the scene. Whatever your skill level, there will be something for you!
During this class, we will briefly share the anatomy of a whip and the physics of why it cracks, then get into the meat of it! We will go into detail about using it in the scene – by demonstrating and walking you through several swings and throws – including the California Swing, the Bow and Arrow, the off the shoulder pull, the underhand flick, and the X swing…
And before you leave we will introduce several ways to make a whip sound off! Like a forehand flick and the famous circus crack! If you have a whip, bring it along, hit the Hardware Store Whipmaking Workshop right before… Or just come out and enjoy the ride!
