Mask of Fiber Workshop: A Guided Journey of mixed media Mask Making

  • Mask of Fiber Workshop: A Guided Journey of mixed media Mask Making
    September 24, 2017
    9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Ages 18+. Instructor Carole Gary Staples. This class was created out of my cathartic experience of creating the Mask of Dark and the strong emotional response that the mask evokes in people. Masks in various forms (sacred, practical, or playful) have played a crucial historical role in the development of understandings about “what it means to be human”, because they permit the imaginative experience of “what it is like” to be transformed into a different identity (or to affirm an existing social or spiritual identity). 

Join us for a day of creating your own mask! The process consist of two phases. First I will guide you through the meditative and intuitive process of creating the foundation and features of the mask and then through the creative and imaginative process of bringing out the personality of the mask, using fun painting and mixed media techniques.

Workshop cost includes materials to create your own mask. When registering – please put in the “Comments” section what color kit you prefer: Black, Grey, or Beige.
