We will start in front of a Coffee in the studio, preparing all the tools we will need. We will share some historical information about masks, in particular about the italian tradition of Commedia leather mask making. Then we will go through the process. First step is to prepare the leather in a bath of water, then choose one of the character mold to make a new Commedia leather mask on it.
Coffee, tea, water
leather and tools
We will work in a studio in the center of the Town, close to Santa Croce Church and handcraft store. We can finish our first day having a lunch in a trattoria in Saint Ambrogio Market. The lunch is not included in the price of the experiences, but can be a nice way to relax together after the work.
My guests don't have to take anything of particular, they will find all they need for the experience in the studio. They can have a photo camera or just a phone to make pictures.
