Hi everyone! I’m leading a workshop on half masks for the stage. Read more below!
To be sure to hear about upcoming workshops and performances, join my mailing list.
Making the Stage-ready Mask
Learn how to make a mask that feeds the performer and is designed to play powerfully on indoor and outdoor stages. In this hands-on workshop, participants will design, sculpt, cast and paint a paper mache character half mask. Attention will be paid to sources of creative inspiration, qualities that promote dynamic onstage play, and techniques for shaping a well-engineered character mask. Participants will leave the workshop with a plaster cast of their face and one painted mask.
This workshop is excellent for costume designers, actors and performers, and mask enthusiasts at all levels of experience. Pre-registration by March 25 is required.
