African Mask.....Play Day


We are preparing for a class next January...



African Masks





This textile came directly from Africa




Class Sample:


Instructor:  Nancy Bryant




The masks will be mounted on stretched canvas:


The canvas needs paint and varnish...






First coat of black paint...






Second coat of black paint...




While we wait for the paint to dry:


Nancy gives instruction on mask making






Students will choose from different mask patterns







Mask Inspiration






The students will only have 3 hours of class time,

so these play days help us gauge the time needed 

to complete the class project






After Nancy's instruction, we got right with it!

Creating masks today for class samples in January.





















Nancy applying the final coat of varnish






The completed textiles will be mounted with velcro tabs






Making a creative mess can be so therapeutic






With several people testing out the class procedure...





We decided this was a project the students could complete

in the 3 hour class time





More to Come......in January 2013
