Want to make a creature that could fit into a Star Wars, Lord of the Rings or Dr Seuss movie? This is a short introductory course for kids and teenagers interested in making creatures and characters you might find in your favourite sci fi or fantasy film. Learn about face casting with plaster of paris, mask modeling with clay, casting with paper mache and latex to create your very own character creature mask that fits your face perfectly!
