    In a time of immediacy, literalism and
disconnectedness masks and stories provide us
with an opportunity to explore our world and
ourselves in a fun, ancient and powerful way.
They permit us to flex our imaginative muscles,
rehearse what might be and experience what is, in
a unique way

 MS 2. - The Sacred Art of Mask & Stories.


         
   
In this workshop the ancient traditions of Masking and Storytelling will be used as
tools to explore facets of ourselves in a safe and supportive environment.
Masks can conceal and protect, as well as reveal and enlighten.
We'll create our masks, off a provided lightweight base, with fabric, wool fibre,
paint and found materials using a variety of your chosen techniques.
We'll also honour the masks by building and enacting their stories.

 MS 3. - Intuitive Felt Masks.


         
   
Beginning with flat felt that you'll create, we'll begin to 'see' features appear as we work.
We'll use a face 'form' to shape the mask and the felting needle with additional fibre
if we need more definition.
(It would be helpful if you have taken
Felt Fundamentals 1 and 2 from
the
Technique Treats! Workshops).
Time will be given to writing and telling your mask's story.
