In this 2-day class you will learn to make a traditional buckram mask.
On day 1 we will:
-Sketch a series of masks
-Sculpt one of them in wet clay
-And create a shell of buckram over the sculpt
This process should take approximately 3 hrs.
On day 2 we will:
-Release and trim the shell
-Fit the mask to your punim
-Paint and your mask is complete.
Most every step of the way will be messy so wear work clothes.
Q- What the hell is buckram?
A- It is a millinery material that can be layered into a rigid lightweight shell. The instructor calls it the “Poor man’s Fiberglass.” It is super strong, light and great for puppets and masks.
Please note, all class fees include a non-refundable enrollment deposit of $25 that will be deducted from your refund if you sign up for, then drop, a class. So, for example, if you sign up for Machine Sewing 101 and pay the $155 class fee, but then remember that you have trapeze school final exams that conflict with the Sewing class and shouldn’t have signed up after all, we will refund you $130 of your tuition payment.
