Mask-Makers of Waswanipi

This week, some students began a multi-step mask-making workshop.

Part 1 - Making Masks

Using plaster cloth, the students made casts of their hands, fingers and faces.

 Part 2 - Decorating

After the masks of hardened, the artists have a chance to decorate. Here's some of the work!

Chantel took this one - capturing the colour and texture of her mask.
Way to go everybody - your masks are beautiful! Now, we're looking forward to making horror movies, doing some storytelling and maybe even a masquerade ball!
