A fun & intimate immersion into mask making for couples, singles, friends, &/or families. Masks are cast from co-participantʼs faces using plaster wrap & then embellished. This fun workshop produces beautiful & imaginative works of art that are ready to hang or wear.
Most cultures have known the use of masks at one point or another. Masks in various forms (sacred, practical, or playful) have played a crucial historical role in the development of understandings about “what it means to be human” because they permit the imaginative experience of what it is like to be transformed into a different identity (or to affirm an existing social or spiritual identity).
Note: Materials will be supplied by artist / instructor Cynthia Marsh & paid for by check or cash at the first class meeting.
