What you'll do

With me you will be able to see yourself in a way that you have never been able to see yourself before, and hold that moment forever. Or give it away to someone you love, or care about.

Together we will make a three-dimensional Plaster of Paris mask of your own unique face in a safe, comfortable, relaxing and peaceful environment. Going through this process you will have a magical, one-of-a-kind experience and a gift to last a lifetime.

Before I begin making the mold, I will take time to get to know you. I’m sensitive to unexpected possibilities and to the unique needs and personality of each individual.

You'll be in extra good hands as I begin the mold making process. Start to finish, casting your face will take up to 20 minutes. Once the mold is removed, we can explore your internal experience of the casting process and I will provide you with various options for how you'd like your mask finished.

Your life mask will take approximately one week to fully dry before I can apply paint finish. Once that's complete I'll let you know and you can pick it up in my studio. If you'd prefer, I can ship it to you anywhere in the contiguous U.S. ($15 per person).
Other things to note
Please let me know if you need to alter start time on the day you select. I usually have some flexibility with my schedule.

Hello, my name is Wendy. I've lived in Woodstock, NY for 25 years and have been creating masks here in my studio in the center of this magical little town ever since. I'm thrilled to bring my professional experience as a mask-maker to the intimate art of life casting. Together we will spend time exploring what draws you to this event and we'll co-create a true-to-life plaster cast of your face. It's more meditative than you might think. It's what I love to do and I look forward to spending quality time together sharing in this unique experience with you.

We will meet and spend time in my Woodstock studio for the duration of this event. It's spacious interior is full of masks and other interesting objects. Here on the third floor you'll get a 360 view of the town that provides a fresh and lovely perspective. A real haven from the street level restaurants, shops and art galleries. You're sure to leave feeling as though you've explored the nooks and crannies of one of Woodstock's best kept secrets.

This was a birthday gift for my daughter and it could not have been more perfect. It created a memory for us, my daughter loved it, and it is a keepsake that will be with her for always. Wendy was so very lovely and easy to connect with and her artistry is truly awesome. Laurie B.

The Lifecasting event was a unique experience to have anywhere, though it feels right at home in the homey and artsy downtown of Woodstock. Wendy is quite friendly and professional and makes you feel comfortable, even as your face is being smeared with goop! It's quick, too, but worth it. Definitely recommend.

Wendy’s energy, passion for what she does and compassionate approach helped me to immediately feel comfortable. She explained what to expect, walked me through the process and then began working her magic. The experience is definitely one of a kind, without a doubt worthwhile to make part of your itinerary and an invaluable memory to keep forever representing this particular time in your life.

Wendy was very professional and gentle. She explained everything first. I was comfortable with the whole procedure and the masks were beautiful. She understand the color I wanted and the masks arrived in 2 weeks.

Wendy was amazing.... very friendly and fun experience . It was really different. We had a great time. Her studio was right in the heart of Woodstock, plenty to do before and after. Great for a day trip or a weekend getaway.
