What you'll do

Surrounded by masks, this first atelier will allow you to obtain a plaster copy of you face. Usually, this is the first step to the creation of a theater mask. But it can also stay like this : once you will have obtained you proper face's copy, recreated in plaster, you'll then be able to have psychological reflexion on yourself, on how you see yourself ; you will be discovering your "alter ego" in a very original way.

On a first moment, we will talk and present each other, drinking tea, coffee or wine... Then, we will start taking your faceprint, thanks to plaster bands (approx 15 minuts). After that, we will be transforming this faceprint into a proper positiv plaster copy of your face, using a technique that I will show you. Once we will have obtained the copy (after 45 minutes approx, because it also has to dry), we will think and talk together about the result, and how you see yourself/this copy of yourself.

This experience with Robin was really interesting and relaxing, it is very funny to see my proper face in plaster at the end of the process. Even if at the begining having my faceprint taken was a bit surprising, I liked it ! Thanks !

Robin is skillful, professional, but also friendly and funny. Casting your face requires to be blinded and mute for a moment, but Robin puts you at ease, keeps talking to you, checking if you are okay and explaining all the process. Before going, I was a bit afraid of what would happen to my eyelashes and brows with the plaster, but Robin protects them in his process, while still keeping almost all the details on my final “double”.

Un super moment passé avec Robin, très sympa et très drôle, avec qui on apprend plein de choses tout en s'amusant. L'accueil est chaleureux, l'expérience atypique et vraiment pittoresque. Les talents de pédagogue de Robin m'ont plongée dans la tradition du masque et son histoire. Le résultat final est très réussi, c'est très agréable de rentrer chez soi avec un bel objet, réalisé en quelques heures seulement ! En bref, une excellente expérience que je conseillerai à mes amis sans hésiter. Merci Robin !!
