  • Just in time for Carnevale, Ciao Italia Meetup invites you to learn the history of Venetian mask making and to create your own half mask masterpiece from the award-winning artist Carla Almanza-deQuant, a featured Gioia Company artist and italian-trained expert in Commedia dell’Arte and Venetian mask making. Your mask will come to life by learning five techniques: decoupage, metal leafing, antique patinas, filigree, and crackle finish and applying the workshop-provided materials of blank “cartapesta” paper half mask, paints, ribbons, glue, imported italian papers for decoupage, trim, gold and silver leafing, and glitter. You may bring any specialty items to add to your mask such as jewels, feathers, fabric, and lace. Carla will add her artistic touch to finish your mask.

    While the workshop will be in English, Carla is fluent in Italian, so if you speak Italian or would like to practice using it, you may do so.

    Workshop fee includes: instruction, materials, morning coffee/tea service, and lunch. To meet the 15 paid participant workshop minimum, refunds will only be issued in the event of workshop cancellation.
