Photo: Mask Making

Masks can take many forms from very simple card on stick or paper bag to intricate ones formed over a 3 dimensional design. I run workshops from drop-ins to a series of several sessions. These can be alongside a drama project to be worn in the show like the animal masks for Noyes Fludde with Bridgewater Hall Learning dept. They can be to explore particular topics like ancient cultures or emotional literacy or to celebrate an occasion like Easter or Halloween.

I work with all ages from pre-school to adults both in the community and within educational establishments.

Each workshop is designed for the specific needs of the project. Please get in touch if you would like me to run mask making workshops in your venue or with your group.
