Workshop on the making of a papier mache mask

  • Each participant is given the plaster cast of a typical Venetian mask.

    The work consists of filling this cast with several layers of special paper towels wet beforehand and spread with glue.

    When the work is completed, the cast is left to dry and the masks are given back only after a few hours (the groups that want to decorate the masks they have made will be unable to do so the same day).

    The eyes of the unfinished masks are to be cut out and the edges cut away, an operation that the artisan “mascherer” carries out before the masks are given back so that no participant needs to use any sharp instrument.

    The masks, finished and immediately ready to be worn, are then returned to the participants.

    Time required: 4 h. (including the theoretical part)

    Languages spoken: English, French, Italian

    Maximum number of participants: 4

Workshop on the decoration of a papier mache mask

Each participant can choose from a vast array of white models among those exhibited by the handicraft shop where the course is held.

The items are ancient Carnival masks of Venice’s daily life, theatre (Commedia dell’Arte) or fashionable, fancy masks.

Each person can choose from different practical work possibilities: two alternative colouring techniques, proposed by the artist, belonging to traditional masks or, for those who want to freely express their creative capacities, fantasy decorations with 5 different finishing techniques.

When the work is finished, each participant can take home his/her own mask which will be unique and different to all the others and will be professionally finished.

Time required: 4 h. (including the theoretical part)

Languages spoken: English, French, Italian

Maximum number of participants: 4

N.B.: For those wanting to make and decorate their own masksthey can do so by combining the two courses described above. For technical reasons it would be better to let two days go by between one session and the other, but, if need be, one day could be sufficient.

Workshop display with the “mascherer” of the art of mask making and “commedia dell’arte” theatre.

Meeting/performance with the actor and mask-maker who will illustrate all the features of “Commedia dell’Arte” characters and reveal the secrets of ancient leather mask-making.
