WHY DID WE LIKE THIS EXPERIENCE SO MUCH?

heart

The art of Venetian Masks in colourful Burano Island

A mask making workshop in Venice, entirely dedicated to typical Venetian masks. 

You will be guided by a true expert along a creative journey leading to the discovery of Venetian mask creation from the Commedia dell’Arte: from the handmade creation in papier-mâché to the final decoration with watercolours, gold leaves and fabrics.

You may also choose your favourite mask among the ones at your disposal, and unleash your creativity!

Marko will pamper his guests, offering them bussolai (typical Burano cookies) in order to enhance their creative abilities.

At the end of the class, you will not just bring back your splendid and authentic handmade Venetian mask, but the age-old techniques and secrets of a true tradition.

For more information, do not hesitate to contact us. We will be glad to help!
