Owned and taught by a lovely Venetian family who hand cast the masks for you to choose from on your arrival. Once you’ve added a couple of layers of paint, they’ll finish it off with some decoration and 30 minutes later it’s ready to be picked up! For me, this was probably the best part about visiting Venice because it was such an authentic and genuine experience. Not to mention you get a one of a kind souvenir to take home, compared to what you can pick up in any of the 500 shops nearby, so it’s definitely worth the money!
La actividad está muy bien. Pintas tu propia máscara y es entretenido, sobretodo para hacer con niños. A parte de las cuatro indicaciones para pintar la máscara, estando en un taller, añoré que me contaran de donde viene la tradición de las máscaras, como trabajan los artesanos en su día a día... Que pusieran en contexto la actividad estaría muy bien.
Really the cherry on the cake for our Venice stay. Excellent host, perfectly mastering his technics but also French language (great for kids!). Result is pretty amazing, specially if you consider our skills :-b
Nicolo was great guiding us through the choices and patient too when thongs didn’t go to plan in our creativity! Would thoroughly recommend this activity for anyone of any age who loves art or being crafty.
It was enjoyable. You get to learn a bit abt the history of mask making. The technique was fun. The instructor was kind and patient.
