Mask and puppeteers making for children

Wednesday workshops

Especially designed for kids between 8 and 12


‘Azur et les Aéroplanes’ offers both mask making and puppeteers making workshops on Wednesdays. Although these workshops are primarily designed for kids between 8 and 12, we encourage parents to accompany their child.




Inspired by the rich European heritage of mask making, this workshop aims at designing and shaping your own cellulose mask using a clay mask as a base.




Each session has a theme in relation with the European mask-making tradition and the season in which the course is scheduled. 

The sessions are held on Wednesday
