14 OCTOBER – Make a Folk Themed Mask

October’s Second Sunday Craft drop-in is inspired by folklore.

Folklore and stories of old have strong connections with the countryside. The craft of mask making is linked to telling these stories. Do you know any folklore stories? The tree, the wolf, the owl…design and have fun making a mask to tell your story.

Base templates will be provided or you can create your own shape. Then create your mask using a collage of different materials. All craft materials included.

Suitable for families with children aged 3 – 12 (we encourage accompanying grown-ups to help their children).
