On Your Face! Maskmaking

Create an exact replica of You ~ Bring a Friend

Instructor: Sara Colburn EdD, CET

Saturday, January 10, 2015 1:30-5:00

Cost: $30 – $20 if paid by January 7

Our face may reflect a rich variety of roles we assume in our daily lives. Maskmaking gives opportunity to play and experiment with the many versions of who we are. As you decorate your mask you have the opportunity to reveal for a brief time something you may want to manifest.

You might discover: a deep hidden or blocked part you never imagined exists; or another side of yourself to recognize, honor and respect, which speaks your language yet never gets to speak – feels your feelings but keeps them hidden – loves to express yet is not given the chance. A mask can help unmask and unveil our multi-sides.

Provided: Plaster strips, Vaseline (protects skin) Acrylic paint, hot glue for decor You bring: A towel and washcloth, plus any materials you may desire to embellish your mask, such as feathers, beads…A headband or clips to hold hair back.

How: Participants pair up and gently apply two layers of small, wet Band-aid size strips to each other’s faces, which will remain there for around a half hour as plaster dries in about 20 minutes – patience required! After scrunching up your face, you remove your mask – it’s like a “birth” – to see your exact countenance. This is an experience of trust and patience (and possibly a pulled hair or two!) Meet your ‘other side’ yet to be revealed as you decorate your countenance – to wear or hang on a wall. Ages: 12 and over

To sign up: Call Sara 970- 263-4501

Pay by cash, check, or Pay Pal.
