Hallowbaloo Costume Workshop: Mask Making!
Create your own wonderful & unique mask for Hallowbaloo and beyond! Local costume designer extraordinaire, Rose Wolfe, will direct the workshop and provide materials. All you need to do is step in the door!
Day 1 - Create Your Own Mask:
The instructor will demonstrate how to build a mask from scratch. A simple mask will be provided to each student to use as a "base mask" to build upon. Paper Mache will be the medium used to build creative shapes. You will learn basic techniques of texturing, molding and shaping. The process will be messy; dress to make a mess. Pizza and snacks provided.
Day 2 - Decorate/Paint Your Mask:
With the Paper Mache now completely dry, you will paint and decorate your mask, happy fun crafty time! Another option for covering the mask is to spray glue on the mask and cover it with fabric, feathers and so much more. Crafty bits will be available.
The instructor is happy to receive emails in advance from students and review your design ideas and creative vision. Donations of extra "crafty bits" and/or paint are welcome but not required.
All ages. Families welcome!
