Who is FantailHoops?
I'm me a lil ole hooper from Wanaka, Aotearoa!
Kia Ora I'm Jo, owner, operator, master Hoopmaker of FantailHoops!
I have been a hooper for 9 years and a Hoop maker for 7.
I make quality hand made hoops right here in NZ using NZ made piping and only quality tapes
My hoop journey started many moons ago whilst I was living and travelling in British Columbia , Canada.
Working and living by the mighty Frazer River it was a tough task to go for a run (highway, railway and uh grizzly bears in yonder forest) I had dabbled in poi in my earlier years but needed something new and fun to satisfy my fitness and learning cravings, so ta da I bought my first hoop and have been on the journey ever since!
I love nutting out teaching techniques and am a passionate hoop teacher, especially for beginners and people new to this amazing art.. Part of getting people involved is providing great quality hoops and hence my desire to become a hoopmaker back in 2012
I love LED and fire performing, but hoopmaking is my number 1 forte!
Here in 2019, with other life focusses performing and teaching are on a time out but my creative fingers and mind are alive for creating circles of fun for all!
