Make a Mask for Carnival
COURSE OF PRODUCTION
A Venetian Master Artisan will explain to you the ancient technique of making a Venetian papier-mâché mask, providing information about the use of masks in Venice during past centuries. At the end of the course, you will keep the mask as a very special souvenir to bring back home.
After mask production, you shall return to the laboratory after a few hours to collect the mask since it takes time to dry; the created mask will not be decorated.
COURSE OF DECORATION
A Venetian Master Artisan will be your experienced decorator, who will teach you how to paint and decorate your own mask, providing you with information about the use of masks in Venice during past centuries. You will choose a mask to be decorated during the course and, at the end, you will keep your mask as a very special souvenir to bring back home.
