The Art of the Mask

Five days

This is a workshop for people who are interested in mask making. Previous experience is not necessary as we introduce students to important artistic skills involved in this traditional handcraft. Every participant will learn to make a papier-mâsché mask, built in a negative plaster mould which is taken from a form modelled in clay.

The lessons involve:
- Introduction to different mask styles
- Designing a mask
- Handcrafts and materials involved in mask making


This workshop can be booked in combination with "Performing the Mask"
