What you'll do

Would you like to discover a traditional mask-making atelier and experience painting first-hand, but not a mask-person? Are you an architecture lover? Yes If the answer is a double yes, spend time with me in my atelier and paint with your hands a papier-mâché architecture souvenir from Venice. I will give you a work apron, a Venetian palace’s facade sculpture and all you need for create a little artwork. I will explain you the same techniques used for decorating the Venetian masks and I will be there with you for suggestions and for talking about my uncommon work.

Meet your host, Sofia

Host on Airbnb since 2019
  • Identity verified
Hello! My name is Sofia and I am the owner of Alberto Sarria Masks, a small workshop established in 1986 by my father in the historic center of Venice, where I create handmade masks in pâper-maché and leather using the traditional techniques. I was born in Venice, where I raised up surrounding by paper, paint, and brushes in my parents’ studio, developing my artistic techniques first as a game and then in art school. Five years ago I decided to carry on the work of my family, to give my contribution in saving the most authentic Venice.
