Workshop: Archetype on a Stick to the Throckmorton
* Saturday, June 3, 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Workshop with Sha Sha
Masks give you an endless source of pleasure in their creation, theatrical imagery, and even as doll -like images to display. Learn to cast and mold, and recast multiple versions, and pose a theatrical image. Bring your imagination or imagine a face you would like like to mold.
Cast from a mold of Sha Sha’s Higby‘s masks, customize and sculpt it into your own. Mount your cast mask onto a stick, add wires to make structural form, sculpt, add texture, ornamental extensions or make your own spiritual catcher . Sha Sha will guide you through a myriad of techniques of embellishing that she uses in her costumes.
You can bring your mask to Sha Sha’s performance on June 24th.
Bring a small bag of colorful memorabilia, natural stick, and a bell or shaker, scissors and needle nose pliers. Wear loose comfortable clothing.
