Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Peterpan Masks
At Peterpan Masks, create a perfect memento from your visit to the Queen of Adriatic--a handmade papier-mache Venetian mask you get to paint yourself. The workshop began in 1996 and is run by four passionate and talented sisters. It's set in a former portico of an old church--look for the doorway with the engraving of Madonna. Masks are hand-painted and decorated with gold leaf, lace, and feathers. The private courses, which are held in small groups, will introduce you to the techniques and explain the history behind the city’s signature masks. Make Peterpan Masks a part of your Venice vacation plans using our Venice trip planner.

We did the mask making class. The mask is pretty basic. 35euros per child. It lasted 45mins. Supplies provided were just paint, glue and glitter. No lace or feathers or anything else more elaborate. Owner is super friendly and kind but English is limited. Kids didn’t get a lot out of the instructions or conversation with her.
Young kids loved it. Nice to do something authentic and have take home souvenir that isn't like everyother
