What you can expect: Stilting support!

oregon-country-fair-stiltingThis a resource place for anyone interested in stilting. We carry all the equipment you will need. We have two principal designs in aluminum and wood that we are really happy with. On the horizon we are working on a design that will integrate ankle movement and allow more fluid movement and we’re very excited about our arm stilts which are really great when creating four legged creatures.

We video our outings and outings of other troupes. Not only is this great entertainment value but this is a window into what other stilters are up to with their costumes, tricks, music and all levels of entertainment. Maybe you are even thinking of starting your own stilting troupe or adding stilting to your act. We can help you there. We have a series of interviews with different stilt troupe members to find out how they got started and what they love most about performing.

No matter what level of stilting you are interested in, we want to be your go to resource. As we continue to learn and practice our craft we are happy to pass that along to you and share some of the fun. Also we love to hear from you. Got any stories of lugging your stilts to foreign lands? Maybe you stilted with Moko Jumbies in Trinidad? Maybe you are a Moko Jumbie? (Definitely on our bucket list). Check out David’s pictures from Java last year on our Facebook page and see the father and son stilters he just happened to run into.

If you are a DIYer and just want some instructions to make your own stilts. We got that too! We have a materials list here on the website along with a YouTube video that walks you thru the steps of making your own wood stilts. If you can change a door handle and a deadbolt on a door, we think you can make your own pair of wood stilts. Then maybe you want some tips on how to walk for the first time? You can also find that here on the website. Did we mention that is FREE?! Help yourself to the materials list, the videos and the instruction. We just love giving back, knowing you are going to be out there having a ton of fun and making people smile. Get ready to feel like an instant rock star up there. The magic of stilting is immediate and obvious when you are doing it, not only to the stilter but to everyone around you.
