During this one or two day mask making workshop, suitable for KS3 upwards, students are closely guided through the stages of making their own mask, from deciding the character, molding the face, ‘pulling’ the mask, painting it, and (most importantly) wearing their personal creation. The masks made by the students remain the schools to keep, and can be a valuable resource for years to come.

The workshop will:
• teach students how professional performance masks are made
• develop practical skills in molding clay, turning the clay mold into the mask, painting, shading and finishing the mask
• inform students’ understanding of character and how to reflect this on a mask
• encourage team bonding and a shared joy in creating a resource for practical use back in the classroom

The Mask Making for Students workshop is suitable for any ability, and no special art skills are required. If you would like a BSL interpeter, please let Vamos Theatre know when booking.
