Mask Magic Family Workshop

From superheroes to Carnival – masks are enchanting objects used by all cultures to impersonate others, to disguise, protect and celebrate. 

In this workshop, ceramicist Yanire Sylva Delgado will help adults/kids create their own hand-painted mask, show examples of masks from different cultures and help you to sketch out your own design. 

Will your mask be ferocious, friendly or fantastically silly? Do you want to be a hero, villain, a made-up character or your mum or dad? When you have mastered your design and created a draft version, you will learn to decorate your ceramic plate using special underglaze paints, which magically transform once fired. 

After the workshop, your plate will be fired and glazed ready for you to collect (details to be given on the day of the workshop). Refreshments during the workshop, materials and firing are included.

Suitable for kids aged 8 and over.

Tickets - £10. Book here.
