Overview:

The appointment for this activity is at the workshop of a famous mask maker in Venice. The maestro will introduce you to the history of mask making and the traditional Venetian masks and their different "personalities" and anecdotes in a fairy tales atmosphere, explaining the ancient technique of making a Venetian papier-mâché mask.


The participant is able to see each phase of the work needed to create the mask, from the clay sculpture up to the white mask that is ready to be decorated. Every family and small group is different The workshop will be tailor made to meet the requirements of specific groups.


By the end, you have learnt the fascinating role that Masks have played in Venetian life in an entertaining and immersive way. Participants then choose two masks to decorate amongst 50 model : from traditional Venetian to fantasy, from the theatre to Carnival, for children or for adults to masks that can be hung on the wall. All of the masks are hand-made out of papier-mâché.


Participants then choose their preferred decoration technique looking at the different examples of finished masks created using each technique. Each phase is demonstrated on the spot by a member of the staff, and there are 8 techniques available. The participants are now able to decorate their own mask however they wish.


They can re-produce the examples seen in the workshop or create a new design for their mask. Acrylic tempera paints are used, metallic colours such as gold, silver and copper can be added for a bit of sparkle and various types of wax can also be used to create a finishing touch. At each stage, participants can make choices that correspond to different characters or expressions in their piece. Everyone has a great deal of freedom and can totally express him/herself. It is also possible to combine two different techniques. Participants can recreate one of the designs in the atelier under the guidance of one of the members of the team. Finally participants can add feathers and sequins to their mask, this is especially appreciated by children.


Last but not least, the participants choose from a number of different coloured ribbons to match their mask. At the end of the course, the participants are able to take their decorated mask at home.
