About this event

We never see our own face except through a mirror but are constantly seen by others and see others' faces. How does this make us feel? In the age of the Selfie and of COVID, we are questioning even more how we reveal and conceal our faces, the masks we put on and take off.

Learn how to make a wearable mask and in the process, learn about the use of symbolism and portrayal of emotions in mask making. Bookings are essential.

Bring your own:

  • lunch
  • small-scale objects of personal interest (for example, buttons, cotton reels, feathers).

The workshop will be held at Logan Art Gallery as a pre-exhibition program for UnMasked. Photographs from the workshop may be presented during the UnMasked exhibition opening on Friday 5 March.

Number of participants: 12.

This is a COVID safe event and hygiene, social distancing and contact tracing restrictions will apply.

Be part of the UnMasked project and see yourself online or in the gallery!
