Strangeface are leading producers of mask theatre in the UK. Beyond our shows we offer a range of workshops, courses and projects for schools, further and higher education students and businesses. Groups can learn to make masks, use masks and gain an understanding of how a piece of theatre is created from the first spark of an idea through to performance.


One day workshops, two day courses  or residencies (up to five days) in the following themes are particularly popular. We are able to build bespoke sessions for your group, so do contact us to discuss your needs:


Three courses which can be used to:
▪   Create a piece of devised mask theatre
▪   Provide a resource for generating new ideas
▪   Make a set of masks for future exploration


Four courses exploring the following:
▪   Introduction to Mask
▪   Commedia dell’Arte
▪   Using Half Masks
▪   Devising With Masks
