model-2LAST WORKSHOP OF THE SEASON: NOVEMBER 20

Good Krampus masks are not easy to come by in the US. The few mass-produced masks made here can be somewhat lacking. Buying an authentic mask from a German-speaking vendor overseas can be daunting as well as expensive ($300-700 and shockingly expensive to ship.) Many consider making their own masks, but have difficulty sourcing the appropriate materials and sculpting a mask they are happy with.

Our mask-making workshop does not rely on sculpting skills but takes more of a kit-assembly approach that ensures the quality of the end result while allowing you the ability to create your own custom look.  Kits include  paints, adhesives, a selection of paintable pre-cast resin faces with ears (Model 1 or 2), materials for making teeth, and tongues, a selection of fur colors, as well as authentic goat, ram, or other horns as available.

Workshops will be lead by Krampus LA director and author of the upcoming The Krampus and the Old Dark Christmas, Al Ridenour and art school instructor and manager Lauren Church.

DATE: 1-5pm, Sunday, November 20.  
PLACE: Location in Pasadena TBA.
COST: $300.  ($150 for materials, $150 for instruction).
DEPOSIT AMOUNT: $100 reserves seat (non-refundable). Balance due November 18.
