Venetian Mask Making
“I liked making my mask, it’s a little messy but really fun! I painted mine purple and there were lots of things to decorate it with. I didn’t want to wait while the glue dried, I wanted to wear it.”
- Katherine (9 years), Venetian Mask Making
“I made a full mask like a Japanese warrior. I painted it red and black. I left the eyes open so I could wear it. It was fun. I let it dry now it is hanging on my wall.”
- Steven (9 years), Venetian Mask Making
“I made mine really well. It turned out great. I put lots of crayon on the sandpaper so lots ironed on to my T-shirt. The red colour did not work as well as the others but still it’s good. I wear it lots.”
- Billy (10 Years), Sandpaper Tee
“Billy is pretty particular about her work and she was unsure of this project, but wanted to try it. She followed the instructions and I helped her iron the crayon on. She really enjoyed creating her own design. Thanks Pip and Vix.
- Andrea (Billy’s mother)
