Traditional Italian Mask Making Workshop
- In a little over 7 ½ weeks, our Southern Cousins will be hosting their
annual Crystal Ball. This year’s theme is Germanic Winters Masquerade
This is always a fun event with tons of fighting, fencing, music,
dancing, and terrific food! Here are just a few photos from last
year’s event (https://picasaweb.google.com/107177881386152930272/CrystalBall2011?authuser=0&feat=directlink)
In preparation for the event, I will be doing a traditional Italian
leather mask making workshop from October 3rd – November 21st.
There are 5 parts to the class, and participants will need to come to
5 of the 8 (7 to have your mask done by crystal ball) weds night
practices. The topics covered will include
Renaissance Mask Techniques
Historical Mask Designs
Building & Designing the Mask
Molding the leather
Finishing the Edges
Not going to Crystal Ball, but still interested in making a leather
mask? Don’t worry, it looks like there will be a ball at RUM and at
Thankfully “The temple of the stick” has agreed to share their Weds
night site with us, which means I can handle FAR more people then I
would be able to in my little apartment. The workshop will run weds
from 7:30-8:30 in Jefferson Park area.
The class fee for the workshop is $35 and will include all the
supplies needed (molding supplies, leather, and dyes). For those that
would like to supply their own leather, the workshop fee would be $15
for the mold and mask making supplies. Though there is no maximum
number you will need to RSVP for the class, so I can make sure I have
enough supplies. To reserve your spot, or if you have any question
please email me at verena@...

Is there any chance someone on this list might be going, who would consent to videotape the classes and post them on Youtube, so that people living at the edge of the continent could learn from Baroness Verena?
