Venetian Mask Workshop

Give the Gift of Art

Making Venetian masks is an intricate art that blends creativity with tradition. On the first day of the workshop, you’ll start by creating a base of paper-mâché, carefully shaping it into elaborate designs that range from whimsical to dramatic.
On the second day of the workshop, you’ll use layers of paint and decorative elements like feathers and gems. These are meticulously added, each detail enhancing the mask’s character and mystery. The process requires patience and skill, as artisans strive to capture the essence of Venetian allure—where each mask tells a unique story, whether it’s for a carnival, a masquerade ball, as a treasured piece of art, or a costume!

$105 per student which is fully inclusive of 5 hours of intensive instruction over two weekends and all materials . Maximum 8 students per class – if you are a larger group, please contact us directly at: learnart@sawdustartfestival.org
