Create a mask using colorful and patterned textiles, cardboard, and origami techniques. In this participatory workshop, children will enter a fantasy world with an oral storytelling session of the Fables de la Fontaine. After choosing their favorite fables and characters, kids will draw an initial sketch of their mask and fabricate it. They will also be able to take their custom mask home.

This workshop is programmed in conjunction with the exhibition Les Mondes de Willy Aractingi.
