Mask Design Master Class


Let Melissa guide you through designing your own beaded mask using your own materials and inspiration from past projects. Construct your mask by choosing from a handful of techniques Melissa will show you over the two day workshop period. Class includes printed directions for the techniques taught.

There will be time with Melissa before and during the class to choose materials for your mask design.

No materials will be available prior to the class from Melissa except the mask base. Plan on using your own stash for the materials in the mask class.
