Default How to do a public bow demonstration?

I posted in the Craft Shows section earlier today - however I've got most of what I wanted sorted in my head - except this bit!

I've been accepted to a high end handmade craft expo and they've asked me to do demonstrations on the bows and stuff that I make. I don't want to be making the entire bow from scratch in front of everyone and giving away the secrets but I am at a loss of actually what to demonstrate?

I can demonstrate korkers, that shouldn't be too much of a problem, but the expo goes for three days and I think they want me to do a demo a day

I need some suggestions if possible please? Should i take unfinished bows, and finish them on the spot, or do an entire demonstration, or do something completely different?!

What about a simple ribbon character clippie, like maybe a mickey head or a turkey? Or you could do a simple pinwheel with/without a template?

I'm not sure I would want to do a bow demonstration. That would be giving your secrets away. Could you do the same demonstration everyday? Then atleast you wouldn't have to comeup with 3 secrets to give a way! I think the simple pinwheel is a good idea. Or, maybe you can do a stacked bow. Have all your layers pre-made and show how to put it together??? Did you say that in your other thread?
