These are some paper masks we made for a workshop at the Provand’s Lordship in Glasgow. They are based on the Tontine Heads which are stone carvings displayed in the buildings garden. The carvings were once keystones in the arches of the Tontine Hotel built in 1781. The workshop was part of a storytelling event which we hope will continue in the future. For more information about the Provand’s Lordship you can visit the Glasgow Museums website.

At the V&A again. There will be an exhibition about the Ballet Russe called “Diaghilev and the Golden Age of the Ballets Russes 1909-1929″ in September. There is not a lot to go on from the museum’s website but it says it is a “major exhibition” so should be worth a visit. Some more information can be found on the V&A’s website by clicking bellow.
A bit late on spotting this, but the V&A museum in London have an exhibition about the Noh theatre. It contains costumes, masks and wood black prints. The V&A has a very good collection of Noh masks by Nohjin Suzuki. A link to the museum website is below, scroll to near the bottom of the page for the exhibition details.
