The next gathering – on Thursday 4 April – will focus on mask making to fit with the Carnevale theme of our fashion parade.
Did you know that the famed Venice Carnevale originated in the 12th century, and although it fell out of favour in the 19th century, it was revived in 1979 as a tourist attraction. Carnevale (a similar celebration in South America is known as Mardi Gras – Fat Tuesday) marks the beginning of the Christian period of fasting and prayer, known as Lent. Carnevale/Mardi Gras was the last big opportunity to let of steam, feast and generally misbehave before the rigours of the six weeks of Lent.
Carnevale masks came in various types. What style will you make?
