What a find! An amazing activity to do whilst on holiday in Venice and I would definitely do this again. I arrived 20 minutes before the start and as I was the only person attending we had an early start, which gave me a bit more time at the end to give my mask the last finishing touches. Jessica was ever so friendly and enthusiastic - Obviously passionate about what she does, which is great to see! Thorough guidance and plenty of ideas were provided during the process as well as encouragement. Jessica was so kind to take plenty of photos whilst I created my mask and even took a video that I later posted onto my Facebook business page. At the end I was also given an overview of the history of mask making/wearing and the carnival tradition in Venice as well as some insight on the process of mask making. They sell some amazing pieces as well. Great experience within a friendly environment. Definitely taking my son when he a bit older as I think he would love it too!

Ideal activity to do with children. You choose the mask that you like the most, you wear an apron so as not to stain yourself and you are free to decorate it with all the paintings and materials that they put at your disposal. Rosella gives you directions if you ask them, but leaves you a lot of freedom to let your imagination fly. When you finish the masks dry so you can take them directly without spoiling them. My daughter (6 years old) really enjoyed the workshop.

an excellent welcome and activity !!! To do again !!!

A warm and very professional welcome from Eric, the store and workshop manager. We were a group of 8 people: 6 students and 2 teachers. Eric put himself completely at our disposal, made the effort to speak French, allowed the activity to overflow in time and informed and guided us on our excursion. A remarkable activity that we will not forget. We highly recommend this activity and especially this workshop. A very big THANK YOU to Eric !!!
