Mask Making

African Mask Making

Perfect for Black History Month or Art Week. Our African mask making workshop looks at the wisdom and creativity involved in mask making. People in Africa have expressed themselves by using masks for thousands of years. Our African mask making workshop explores some of the mysteries of the masks in our collection. We also look at how African mask making has influenced some famous artists. Masks tap into a deep instinct. This is a workshop where you can let your creativity flow expressing your emotions through your art. Our mask making workshop encourages freedom of creativity and self-expression. Mystery, intrigue and ritual intermingle creating a therapeutic and artistic workshop.


We have a few Masks from Africa for everyone to look at. We look at the messages and symbols conveyed by some of the mask makers. We look at all the materials used to make masks and the occasions masks are worn. We show you the techniques of making your own. Each participant then makes their own mask which they can take away. We provide all the materials.
