This course takes place on 2 weekends.
The first weekend is for creating and building the mask. First a form is made with clay. We will give the mask a face. The clay form is then covered with paper soaked in a glue mixture and is left to dry overnight. The next day the paper skin is taken off of the clay form - the mask is born! Now holes are cut for the eyes and for breathing and a fastening is attached. First greeting rituals lead to playing masque.
The second weekend is dedicated to masque. Your mask should now have a headdress, also bring along an artefact that your mask likes to handle and a costume. We will give the mask its own life.
You will be introduced to the world of masque.
