Paper – mache classes

From 60€

Paper-mache classes are fun for kids and adults. You will learn a modelling tecnique, which is based on very simple materials, such as recycled paper and natural glue. Giovanna and Daniela will tell you about the origin of this artistic production and how it has developed to support the bulding of giant Carnival floats, showing the step-by-step process.

Let’s select the mould you like: a butterfly, a Burlamacco, a fish or a tiger and create your own mask! You’ll work with newspaper cuts and glue, then enjoy colouring your mask as you like. This activity is particularly suitable for families and kids at any age, who can enjoy the creative process together and build their own souvenir.

Enjoy creating a paper – mache souvenir

If you are visiting Viareggio during  January/February, attend the extraordinary Viareggio Carnival parades. Take a Carnival tour to learn about the history of this traditional event and the skills of floats masters.
