Making Faces: A workshop all about found object mask making (and wearable art)
Over the course of 4 two hour meetings we’ll cover:
a brief history of mask making
global precedents of found object masks.
the concept of bricolage
ideas tied to wearable art
possible modes of attachment and fabrication (mechanical, adhesive, sewn, welded, etc)
*potential Saturday afternoon trip to the local junkyard(s) to source materials @ the start of the course.
At the end of the month long session, each participant should have a wider grasp on the cultural significance of masks, as well as a durable and wearable mask of their own design. (Just in time for Halloween!)
When: Monday’s in September 7-9pm. Starting Sept.9 (4 two hour workshops)
Class Limit: 6
This class is for: All Ages + Artists and Non-Artists alike
