Take part in a hands-on workshop in the heart of the San Polo district of Venice as you learn the ancient craft of mask-making from a real mascareri, one of the few talented artisans who, for hundreds of years, have kept alive the traditions of making Venetian masks. Learn about the mask culture in Venice as your expert guide escorts you to the studio on foot. Once at the studio, during this two-hour class, you hear amazing stories of the Carnevale’s history and learn more about its most popular characters: Arlecchino and Pulcinella, loved by kids and adults alike. The craftsmen explain the meaning of the masks and the different colouring techniques used to express their creativity. Start the fun process of painting and decorating your mask with glitter, feathers, sequins, ribbons, and fancy trimmings. After the lesson, walk away from a memorable experience with your very own, one of a kind, Venetian mask.
