Live lecture by Kainoa Harbottle ($75.00)

Hawaii's Kainoa Harbottle is regarded as one of the world's finest coin magicians, and what we like best about him is that he's the "complete" coin magician. That is, his skill is world-class, and he does all sorts of unusual, beautiful moves with grace and precision. But Kainoa is also wildly clever, and he has created a mountain of tremendous coin material. Finally, Kainoa is a relaxed, funny performer, and his presentations are often the best part of his magic. We're delighted to welcome Kainoa as a Masterclass Live Instructor, and he will focus on a mixture of new and published routines, as well as material that will challenge experts, and other things that will be achievable for those who have never done a coin trick in their lives.

Week One: (November 7th 2021, 4pm ET) - Presence and Absence

At its most basic level, card magic is about information; colors, suits, and values are bits of data that the magician controls. At its most basic level, coin magic is about objects appearing and disappearing--about presence and absence. What better place than “Vanishing, Inc.” to discuss the essential aspect of these shiny props. During this class we will consider some simple vanishes with individual coins, but we will spend most of our time focused on the hows and whys of manipulating multiple coins to bring them in and out of existence. This realm of “stack work” can be daunting even for the dexterous but is also extremely rewarding. This session will feature multiple techniques and routines that are about making coins appear and disappear in impossible and entertaining ways.

Week Two: (November 14th 2021, 4pm ET) - Hatching a Plot

Many magicians forget that a coin vanish in isolation is not really magic: it is a technique by which we create magical effects. There are multiple narratives that magicians have latched on to with coins, and this session will take a critical eye to some of the “standards” that seasoned performers have found useful in professional settings. From Coins Across to Coins Through the Table, we will investigate how the real work of presentation unfolds alongside the methods, how narratives drive performances, and how sometimes less is more.

Week Three: (November 21st 2021, 4pm ET) - Zoom Call

This live question and answer session will be focused on how to be creative with your wizardry, no matter what props you favor. Using various examples from coin magic, Kainoa will walk you through his own methods of developing and honing material ranging from single effects to acts. Some of his methods are painfully obvious while others will send you into an existential crisis (as they often do him). This session is really about becoming comfortable with creativity by understanding that it is not so much a contiguous process but an example of punctuated equilibrium, where the fits and starts of the hands and the leaps and bounds of the mind can ultimately be molded into the illusion of a coherent whole.

  • Robert asks: I have the At The Table Live Lecture by Kainoa from Vanishinginc. Is the Masterclass Live from Kainoa very similar to it? How is it different?

    • 1. Kainoa Harbottle (creator) responds: So, I had my lists from At the Table Live and my Penguin lectures in my notebook while I've been working on these. There's always a little cross over (because, hey, it's me), but these talks will include material that's old for me but new for everyone else.
    • 2. Kainoa Harbottle (creator) responds: Oh, and the At the Table lecture is from Murphy's; it's not produced by Vanishing.

I have been so excited for this series and it completely shattered all my expectations. There are so many “gems and germs” in this masterclass. The effects and explanations are clear, concise and adaptable to many different scenarios. These effects are adaptable whether you do table or walk around. I truly believe there is something in this course for everyone. Kainoa is an excellent teacher and magician. In this course he takes you through making coin magic not just procedural focused but also presentation focused as well. This course has sparked even more excitement to dive deeper into learning, studying, practicing and performing coin theory and presentation. I believe this course will elevate your coin magic performance.

Kainoa Harbottle delivers again with an awesome masterclass! From his thoughts on structure of routine and plots are excellent. He breaks everything down to why he does certain things and how it lead to that. If you are unfamiliar with his work on coins then you are in for a real treat. His coin magic is what real magic is suppose to look like. Some of his stuff is challenging but what good magic isn't. Thanks Kainoa and Vanishing Inc for hosting this Masterclass.

I loved this Master Class. I enjoy coin magic but at times I've been extremely frustrated with it. Kainoa taught this class in a very clear and concise manner. Extremely helpful. Thank you.

Kainoa Harbottle is an absolute beast in the field of coin magic. His magic is elegant and simple to follow. It’s never arrogant and always makes sense. This whole masterclass is fantastic but I particularly loved the copper/silver material where I will definitely be adding moves and plots to my close up repertoire.

Kainoa Harbottle is one of those names that I always hear anytime someone brings up coin magic. He is clearly a master at his craft and the way he teaches is fun and easy to follow. I highly recommend this masterclass
