MAKING MAGNIFICENT MAYAN MASKS!

Last week, Birch Class learnt about different types of masks...

Last week, Birch Class learnt about different types of masks that were made, and worn, by the Mayan civilisation for different special occasions. They ranged from beautifully decorative to rather terrifying designs!

 

We then designed and created our own masks, using various tools to add details. Some were inspired by animals and other created impressive patterns using various techniques with their tools. It's fair to say that every design is completely unique and they look amazing! Check out the photos of us in the process of making our masks!
