What to Expect
You will have seen these wonderful masks adorning walls as you travel around Sri Lanka but have you ever wondered how they are made? On this experience, we take you to visit an arts and crafts shop tucked away in Galle Fort not only to learn all about the history of mask making in Sri Lanka but also to give you the opportunity to create your own. You will learn the fascinating and age-old techniques from your host in Kolam where masks are usually made from a light wood called “Kaduru”. Follow your host’s guidance and observe his techniques as together you mould your creation using traditional and sustainable resources.
