Berlin Fire Eating Classes and Fire Performance Workshops
Berlin Fire Eating Classes and Fire Magic with Shade Flamewater 17th October 2020
We are back with our famous fire eating classes, with some tweaks to how we run things in a Covid-19 world. Classes are limited to groups of 10 students. Everyone will be required to wear a mask for non-fire eating portions of the class. Students will need their own torches! We will continue to have our torches available for purchase at the classes, bu we will no longer supply ‘spare’ torches for people to share.
Instead of having large groups and multiple classes, we will have the one small group for an entire day and have much more one-on-one time with Shade and more practice time.
Villa Kuriosum, Scheffelstraße 21 / 10367 Berlin
Full Day Fire Eating Course 12pm-6pm
We will break at 2pm for lunch (approx)
Private classes also available! Please contact us to book.
Please note all ticket sales are final and are non-refundable.

The Full Day Course is our new fire eating class designed for a group of 10 students. This class is suitable for complete beginners AND working professionals. We begin with an introduction to fire safety, simple hand tricks, flourishes, and fundamental fire eating instruction.
After a break for lunch, the fire eating class continues with learning the 5 ways to draw vapor. You will learn several fire vapor tricks, including the Human Candle, Multiple Fire Balls, and much more. We will learn skin ‘fleshing’ tricks, and combination moves like the Statue of Liberty and Blow-a-Kiss. Around this segment of the class, students will receive more personalized instruction and will be able to work on tricks within your skill level.
Over the duration of the class, there will be periods where we will need to take breaks to re-hydrate, allow the room to clear of smoke etc. Some of these moments we will use to move outside and practice outdoor conditions in the courtyard. This will only be done under our supervision. We will also be teaching torch manipulation moves and flourishes during these breaks that will not require the use of fire.
What To Bring
- Hollow fire eating torches (available for purchase if you don’t have your own)
- A Mask (for social distancing measures)
- Water Bottle
What To Wear
Please wear natural fabric clothing like cotton, denim, hemp etc. Ideally a black t-shirt and jeans, something you don’t mind getting dirty! Please tie back any long hair! Gents with long beards should bring a hair-tie for it too. Please make sure you bring a water bottle for yourself, and we recommend you bring some food for yourself as it’s a long day for those of you taking multiple classes.

I had booked in for both of Shade’s fire eating classes… He is an amazing, genuine and very talented guy…and a truly wonderful teacher with a sense of humor. He went with the principle of you do what you are comfortable with which was great and really worked for me. I hadn’t ever done anything like this before but with Shade’s clear instructions, demonstrations and encouragement I managed to pick up most of the tricks he taught me. He gave me suggestions for practicing the techniques I had just learnt and great tips for fire safety and looking after my fire eating gear which is always a plus.
I would highly recommend him as a teacher to anyone who is either a curious beginner or a well practiced fire eater. And I look forward to future classes. – Lux Corvinus
Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking the beginner and advanced workshops. The beginner class was great for practicing and correcting a few techniques I already know. I definitely leveled up with the advanced. Shade is an absolutely wonderful teacher. Shade is knowledgeable, patient, and personable, which is a great combination for teaching. I’m more than satisfied and excited to practice and build on what I learned! Definitely money and time well spent! Thanks for stopping by Ohio! – Ariel Renae
My love and I took the beginner class and learned so much. I’m thankful to have learned from such skilled people! Thanks for coming to Akron ( Cleveland! ) – Jennifer Baker
Wonderful performers, but beautiful, talented, and patient teachers as well! – Melissa Stump
