Masks have always been an essential component of a Venetian carnival. Carnivals started as a time for celebration where all social classes would mingle, and the fact of wearing a mask offered a unique possibility to remain anonymous, enjoying the advantages that such condition brought with it.
In a society where social classes were very well defined and not intended to interact with each other, wearing a mask allowed to hide any form of identification based on origin, age, gender or religion.
In this 2-hour session, with your creative juices on hand, conceptualise a mask that interprets no one else but you. We are sure you’ll be just as astounded with the finished piece as we are.
