We're looking for the faces of Otago! It could be a face that tells a story, a famous face, a furry creature face - any face! Get creative and come along to our great mask making workshops, then wear your mask to the Museum for The Big Get Together on Sunday 27 March. Join the big masquerade parade and you could be in to win a Microsoft Xbox 360 slim with Kinect motion sensor to put your face on the big screen!
Mask Workshop 1 - Museum of Faces
Fantastic faces from the Museum collections have come together for the Your Face Here exhibition. Take your cues from one of the Museum's iconic faces as you recreate a marvellous mask inspired by a world culture, a living creature or your favourite collection object.
Saturday 15 January, 1pm
Mask Workshop 2- Face Nature
Ever wanted to look like a royal albatross, an unfurling fern frond or Japanese spider crab? Now is your chance to become your favourite creature or create an environmental message on a mask! Dip into our stash of feathers, scales and wacky materials to bring out your wild side.
Saturday 26 February, 1pm
