We are delighted to be able to share with you a virtual Roman Mask Making workshop courtesy of our brilliant Associate Artist, Elaine Winter and The University of Nottingham Museum. Learn about the drama of Roman theatre masks and other fascinating faces from the past and then create yours in your very own home!

Elaine gives a step-by-step guide for you to follow to make creating your mask at home that much easier. A downloadable guide is also available below.


If you've had a go at making a Roman Theatre Mask, we would love to see your creations. Share them with us on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #InWithLakeside.

We can’t wait to see what you create!
