Join us in this fresh and fast paced mask making workshop to create a unique wearable mask in just one day! Try your hand at sculpting with innovative polymer clays, and bring creatures and characters from the imagination to life! - Beginners welcome! All materials included in course fee.
In this new and exciting mask making workshop you will learn to sculpt and produce your own mask using a semi-flexible oven-fired polymer clay.
Whether you’re an aspiring creature sculptor destined for the world of film, a performer looking for a fresh way to embody a character, or perhaps you’re building an elaborate new party costume, this class is a fun and engaging way to experiment with clay and take home a new persona to try on!
Mask making offers both the opportunity to gain new experience with a less common type of sculpting material, as well as practice turning creatures and characters from the imagination into a physical form.
With these innovative modern clays we can create translucent, semi-flexible, and even glow-in-the-dark elements to add more realism or a touch of the surreal into each creation!
Through the session you will be guided through basic knowledge of human and animal facial anatomy. We recommend arriving with a sketchbook or photos of a few ideas for your design. We’ll assist you in both developing your design and creating your customised mask. We will begin with simple core forms, and work towards gradually finer details and textures as we get a feel for the materials.
If you’re a beginner in sculpting, the class offers a fun introduction to sculpting organic forms from scratch, and if you already have some hands-on creative experience, it offers a great opportunity to play with a new medium and advance your making skills.
