Meet your host, Eloisa

Host on Airbnb since 2019
  • Identity verified
I am a second-generation mask-maker. The owner of Ca'Macana, my dad, taught me how to make Venetian masks at an early age. Since then, my love for this ancient form of art has flourished. At Ca'Macana, we preserve, develop and spread the culture of Venetian masks. We have been doing this for over thirty years and we take pride in doing everything by hand, according to the tradition. We want to share our knowledge of mask-making with our visitors, thus we offer a number of different mask making and decorating workshops.

Where you'll be

We will run this course in one of our workshops, in Dorsoduro, Venice. You'll see how a real mask-making workshop is run and structured. You might also be able to see our artisans at work. It’s a special place to see and experience.
