Cut, Fold & Curl: Paper Manipulation Mask-Making Workshop with Emma Knox

Register

Join us in transforming flat, 2D paper into a unique 3D mask!

During this workshop, instructor Emma Knox will guide participants in creating a paper mask by utilizing several paper-manipulation techniques such as folding, scoring, water-forming, and curling. Participants will learn about how different kinds of papers create different textures and looks, with the goal leading to a wearable or decorative mask to take home.

This workshop is open to curious adults, teenagers and parent-children (5 to 12 years old) duos who wish to create a unique mask made out of paper! Parents-children duos will create a mask together and only need to register under a single ticket. No prior experience related to working with paper necessary.

All supplies are included.

A $5.00 discount is available for high school and university students. Please email a scanned copy of your student card to workshops@leightoncentre.org to receive the code for the discount.
