Maskmaking with James Pilston

This Event Takes Place @ Chapel Arts, Cheltenham (Chapel Arts, Knapp Road (Near St. James Square), Cheltenham. GL50 3QQ)

Join James for a fabulous day of building and decorating your mask. 

He will help you plan the basic substructure form, make and apply the clay. He will teach different techniques and recipes for making home-made paper clay, and decoration with paints and lacquer. 

Please bring apron and rubber gloves. James will supply all other materials. You may like to research some designs or take a look at James' website for inspiration and ideas and to see what you can achieve. 

Please Note: You may need to leave your piece to dry and it will be stored safely at Chapel Arts for collection.


James studied theatre design and illustration and worked as an illustrator for many years. His fascination with folklore and legend, films and children's television of his 1970's childhood are never far away. These images led him to work on three-dimensional pieces using papier-mâché and mixed media, recycled materials - anything from scrap wood to discarded plastic. Visit his website.
