David Kemp (Artist) Interview

This afternoon David Kemp (a local artist & sculptor) came to talk to Rooms 1, 2 & 3 about mask making.

Since he was our EXPERT we had prepared 4 questions each to ask him. We wanted to find out more about making masks, where to get the materials and how to join things together.

At the end of the question time David showed us how to paper machie and how to make a frame for our masks with a headband. It was really useful and we have come away with lots of ideas for our masks that we will be making for the Nelson Masked Parade in October.
