If you are interested in doing/organising a mask making workshop with cardboard… If you have an idea or a project with theatre and masks
The workshop focuses on the creative possibilities of cardboard as a material. The participants will be able to learn the technical principles of working with cardboard in an artisanal and manual environment, approaching the masks from a theatrical perspective.
During this workshop we will treat the material in a plastic way through a process of manufacture, construction and design. To then learn a technical procedure to create volumes, design structures and model with our hands.
Using simple tools we can think of applying other materials that may be within the same poetic universe, such as rope, straw, vegetable fibres… A feature to highlight will be the recycling and recovery of all kinds of cardboard and paper, which will be given a second life to create interesting, effective and surprising masks.
The workshop is aimed at young people and adults who want to experiment, discover their creative capabilities and limits. The theater company also organizes projects where the plastic starting point for the creation of the masks is some theme, text or characteristic of the tradition, history or geography of the place where it is developed.
