Had the best time with all the family making Venetian masks. Staff were patient and helpful without taking over the creative process. And while we over ran our 1 hour timeslot we were allowed to take our time and finish up. A really memorable experience!

This was such a good idea to do. The woman taking the class made it really easy for two completely Not artistic people to make good looking masks. Her method of teaching was easy to follow, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

My 9 year old daughters favorite part of our trip was painting her own mask. A great experience (we booked for 10 am group session - but she was on her own so essentially a private session). Interesting book to take away as well.
