After a few months of experimentation, calico trials, skill-development and training, I can now reveal the first prototype Leather Bag. This is incorporating  a panel made in the Italian mask-making technique of wet moulded veg tan over a carved wooden former. I have learned such a lot from this and am now confident that I am on the right trajectory for the  future of S.J. Mask-Maker and Bag-Man.

Final preparations being made for this coming  week-end of Open Studios.                                    10am till 5pm on Saturday 13th May and Sunday14th May.

Parrot Face and Ball Child.

These are my two masks made in the spirit of the Naive or Laval Mask.

The Neutral/Naive mask brings a childlike playfulness into the rehearsal room and performance space.  They  are capable of expressing a depth of emotion as exemplified by some of the early works by Trestle Theatre Company (Creche) and the Moving Picture Mime Show (The Examination).
