Human Masks in Felt with Gladys Paulus

26 October @ 9:00 am - 30 October @ 5:00 pm


Human Masks in Felt with Gladys Paulus
in Vienna/ Austria

During this 5 day technical master class with UK-based textile artist Gladys Paulus, you will learn how to calculate, design and create a base resist template which will become the starting point for an experimental and playful fantasy mask. Mask making requires a combined approach of thorough planning and intuitive felt making. More than just a face cover, these masks will cover the head completely and are sculptures in their own right. You will learn how to achieve facial symmetry, experiment with different types of protrusions and colour, build up features and markings, create hair or textural surfaces, how to felt all the 3-dimensional parts together and how to sculpt and shape the felt.
