Our girls LOVE their Masks!

Giorgio was amazing with our two girls (ages 12 & 14). They had a great time selecting the style of mask, designing and painting the masks. Giorgio was very patient and did a beautiful job of decorating the masks after the girls painted them - he used glitter. There was air conditioning in the tiny workshop too - which was very nice. I sat at the restaurant outside his door and read and had a glass of wine while I waited - it was nice b/c I could watch in the window or sit in the little workshop. The masks were ready to take away with us when we left - we let them dry in the hotel room the rest of the day just to be sure. Thank you so much - the girls LOVE their masks!

Out instructor was amazing. He was very friendly and helped with the masks. Our masks came out amazing. Now the directions to the shop were horrible. Viator should have someone meet you and walk you over.

Even if you aren’t creative your mask will come out fantastic with the help of the owners. We all had a great time painting our masks and showing them off during Carnivale. Thank you

Hard to find

The venue was quite difficult to find and when we got there it had been over booked. We were taken to an alternative venue which was excellent, as were the mask making staff but we did lose 20 mins of our experience. Loved the masks we made though.

Dear, we are glad that you've appreciated the mask class. We are sorry if you arrive late, but yesterday Venice was overcrowded and the police blocked some streets, for this reason you arrive at the second workshop few minutes late. At your disposal for further information Best regards

Giorgio and his son Nicolo were true experts and artisans. Both kind and knowledgeable; we had a wonderful time learning about Venetian masks and they unlocked the true artist in my husband. We loved it and highly recommend this class.

I wish I could post a picture of my mask. It's beautiful. The guy was helpful and informative. It was a great time and now I have a unique piece of art for my wall. You don't have to be super artistic to be successful, the dude helps every step of the way.

Giorgio made it a great experience

Well, we scheduled this to be for two adults (myself and my daughter) and two children (my two granddaughters). My granddaughters both came down with colds, so my daughter and I went without them. We chose our masks and Giorgio explained the technique for painting and made helpful suggestions on designs. The shop is small and filled with glorious finished masks that they have created. They are amazing! While our masks were drying, Giorgio gave us a great history of the masks in Venice! He was very informative and entertaining! We enjoyed it very much. We took home masks for the girls to paint and they couldn’t wait to get to it! I know they would have LOVED going to the shop and meeting Giorgio and his wife and of course visiting Venice!
