Join exhibiting artist Alicia Paz to make masks using different papers, paint, magazine cutouts, glitter, and other colourful materials and textures in this free workshop.
Masks are used by people in many different contexts. We can use them to disguise ourselves, to become another person, or perhaps pretend to be an animal, an imaginary character or creature. We might wish to use a mask to protect ourselves, for example during the coronavirus pandemic, during a fire, or when playing a sport. Masks are sometimes used as part of a ritual, celebrating a change in life or a new phase we are entering.
In this workshop, we will be making masks using papers, paint, magazine cutouts, glitter, and other colourful materials and textures. We will be thinking about pretending to be different. In relation to the exhibition River Makers, we can also focus on historical people if we wish, or make a maks inspired by creatures and plants that live in water, such as in the sea or in a river.
This workshop (the first of a series of Art Club events) is a time to playfully explore different sides of who we are. A "show and tell" session will give participants who wish to speak about what they have made a chance to share their thoughts and impressions.
Please note, this workshop is suitable for all ages. Adults and children both require tickets to be booked in advance.
