Mask Making Workshop for Educators
This workshop is a chance for educators to dive right in and get creative utilizing intuitive and accessible approaches for mask masking that yields a sophisticated surface. Exploring a spontaneous and versatile free-building technique, educators will work closely with master mask-maker Eric Bornstein to transform a basic half mask form into exciting characters, with an option to augment with patterns and textures using an array of decorative materials including: chenille stems, pony beads, faux jewels, feathers, fur and fabric. Eric Bornstein of Behind the Mask will display samples, discuss techniques and, and how to incorporate this activity into curriculum.
- Educators will learn methods for scaffolding mask making projects including prepping materials, visualizing a 3-D design, sculpting a foundational form, and techniques for refining details.
