Event description

Description

The Hambidge Center and The Works - Upper Westside ATL present a Mask-Making Workshop with Julia Hill. The workshop will take place at The Works - Upper Westside ATL.

FREE to the public (adults only). Participation is limited, so please get your free ticket through Eventbrite.

Protection, ceremony, ornamentation, amusement...masks have been crafted and worn by humans across the globe for these reasons and more since before the earliest cave paintings. In this workshop led by Julia Hill, we will explore our own inspirations for masquerading, while creating a unique wearable sculpture out of salvaged odds and ends, reclaimed materials, and a whole lot of cardboard.

This workshop is for ADULTS ONLY (we'll have crayons and paper for kids, if you need to bring them along, but they require no ticket).

Supplies you need to bring:
Think interesting shapes and textures, and then raid your closet, your attic, your basement, your yard, and your recycle bin! Examples: egg cartons, mesh fruit bags, sticks from the yard, fabric, artificial flowers, pom poms, ping pong balls, zip ties, rubber gloves, bubble wrap, styrofoam packing material, yarn, zippers, shredded paper, etc, etc.

Bring a base structure, IF you have something on hand. This is optional. Examples: hats, old bike helmets, old glasses frames.

And finally, if you have an idea, bring it and the materials you want to use, and Julia will help you put it together. If you don't know what you want your mask to look like, that's okay, too! Just bring some random materials, and Julia will help you create something wonderful.

Wear your mask to the Hambidge Center's Art Auction + Masquerade Bash on October 26! www.HambidgeAuction.org

The workshop will be held in conjunction with our public screening of Andy Warhol’s “Empire." (see our Facebook event page)
